    Really cool story, Jim

    I can really relate to this story. Funny thing is many of us have them … things we can look back on and just smile. I know I do. Sort of surprised to know that somewhere out there is an Amish man that does, too!

    By God’s Grace no one in this story got killed or seriously injured and likewise in my youth; though I am not sure how they didn’t. Other than to give credit and praise to our Lord that they didn’t.

    This is a great story, Jim! I, too, had a beater car when I turned 16 and believe it or not, her name was “Lizzie” too! I named her “Lizzie The Lizard” because of her becoming golden-green paint though.

    Yep, this post brought a smile to me, too, recalling my boyfriend’s (now husband of 41+ years) first beater—a ’61 Impala, black, with lots of “issues”. I’ll never forget the “cherry bomb” (bright, shiny red) muffler he had to buy for it shortly after acquiring it. This was the first vehicle he actually bought, licensed & owned by himself (earlier, he drove the old family car, named “Betsy 2 Also”. There had been a Betsy 1, and then Betsy 2, too (“two” + “too” = “also”. Bad pun!)

    Amish or Englisch, all of our “running around” years bring back many memorable (and often embarrassing) moments. Thank God we survived!

    I could envision a book of Amish “rumspringa” car photos…more interesting than many “coffee table” books, I’m sure! 😉
