Haha! I drove a Chevette back in the day, and would always joke that I drove a Vette ..

HA! ME TOO! In fact, I was 22 yrs old at the time and by a strange quirk of fate, I was living in Las Vegas too. I could lie about a lot of things to the folks back home

I always wanted a Chevette. Not the very first ones. But the later ones.

We had a Pinto instead.

But I needed a pickemup truck as i had a serious side business of mowing lawns.

Oh, id still love a chevette.

My great aunt and great uncle are one of the luckiest people who always done financially well enough to be able to actually enjoy their retirement years. They purchased several rental properties before they retired from their day jobs at 65. They also built a beautiful home across the country to move to in a peaceful gated community. They spend most their time traveling a lot as well as have many hobbies. On the other hand, it's truly sad that many people.. my parents included will never be able to afford to retire.

Blend in the Porsche, the house in Malibu together in the back ground ,then get the little Barbie doll hand holding the credit card in the foreground....now we are ready for the clincher ...take a picture of your lil Winkee dink and put it near the little Barbie hand that is holding the little Barbie credit card , that lil thing will look huge in comparison ....now you got everything you need to attract one of those young babes.


If that donít work then you have to get back to basics ...DOES THIS RAG SMELL LIKE CHLOROFORM TO YOU ?

I had Firebirds 3 of them - all Trans Am's. Loved them.

Then, I started a business with my brother and after working really hard, he gave me my all time favorite car - a 380SL (convertible) - black on black. I was just an average girl but I have to admit, I could get things I hadn't gotten before. (We had not taken a paycheck for a year so I got the car and some payments but it was the thought that counted).

I was the same person though but I loved that car. I had it 12 years and I know my daughter was hoping and praying it would come to her....but had to sell it (tear, tear).

It was a dream to drive. My fun car.

It's sad - you don't see as many convertibles today - I had it until 1995. I miss it.
