About “betty”

Ive owned my car for allmost 5 years i really havent done much to it becuase at least once every other month something happens like a deer runing out in front of it or just about anything but i do have to say it has had a lot of bad luck but she all ways comes out ok. right now im in the process of fixing it up if anybody has any good ideas hit me up.

About “Storm Trooper”

My boyfriend got tired of my driving my all-original, low mile 1986 Firebird in all kinds of weather and traffic, so on the anniversary of our first date, he surprised me with the down payment on a car he had found at a local dealer that he thought I'd like. I'm not too crazy about white, but as for the rest of the car, I'm there! A small, sporty convertible with an automatic and low miles is just what I'd have looked for if I knew I was looking for a car! I saw his logic because, just earlier today, I almost got clobbered in my Firebird by some lady in an Explorer who was talking on a cell phone. She ran a red light and if I hadn't nailed the brakes she would have put an end to my car..... and maybe ME!

(I had originally called this car "White Fire" until a Motortopia friend said that it's front end reminded him of a Storm Trooper from "Star Wars". I had to agree, and I liked it so much that I changed the car's name!)
