four wheels, no brakes

my friend recently emailed me the complete list of rules for calling shotgun. i need to hang it up in my car so my siblings can get it straight. see, my older sister and i share a car. my grandfather bought a new car and gave us his old one. it's a 1990 century Buick. my brother says it's falling apart. i say it has character. the tape deck doesn't work. if you roll down the passenger window all the way it gets stuck. when the car goes over a bump the CD stops working. the air deflector hangs down in the front so when i pull out of a driveway it scrapes the ground. until recently one of the windshield wipers didn't work.
but we love our car. my sister collects money from all my friends for our 'car fun' we had to buy a new windshield wiper (which cost $5) and now we're collecting be case we need to replace our tires (that's going to cost us $200) and she says statistically we're bound to get a ticket sooner or later. so she asks anyone who gets a ride in our car to contribute. so far we've collected to tissues and a dollar

I used to have a car like that...
I miss the old days when you actually got attached to cars..and so many memories were created in them...
Instead of returning them when the lease is up for a squeaky clean new one..
