This was my car. I was out practicing driving with my dad and brother Karl. My dad told me to “Turn here”…and I did, at 30 mph. As a result I high centered the 1978 Mercury Zepher on the bush next to the driveway and I blew out a new tire too. My dad yelled at me to slow down as I was taking the corner…he didn’t tell me to do it before I turned. He got out of the car looked at it and told my brother and I to stay there so he could walk home and get another vehicle.
When he came back he had my mom with him and she had a camera and I have never live this one down. Now, even my kids tell this story of when I went around the corner too fast.
My mom and I were talking about it one day and she told me that my dad laughed all the way home.
Andrew will be driving soon, I am not looking forward to turning him loose on the roads here. He thinks he knows everything there is to know about driving…think I might blow this picture up and frame it for him.
