Had three OMGs today
Then it's settled. I won't need to quit wanting one....Once again, I was the gawker! Was in my Jeep and pulled into a grocery store lot. There was a short, white-haired older gentleman putting groceries into his Challenger trunck. It was a beautiful dark blue color and, of course I love Challengers and always enjoy a compliment myself. So I walked over and said, “Beautiful car and I love the color!” I was expecting a 3.6 version (nothing against them at all but just figured he’d be playing it safe). He said, “Thank you, I like it, too” and closed the trunk. That is when I saw the Hellcat insignia and I said, “Oh wow! You’ve got the Hellcat!” He said “Yes, the 800 hp version. I’ve actually had the car up to 167 mph with pedal still left but backed off because at my age I need to be careful - I’m 79.!”
Just goes to show; you’re never too old!
That's fantastic! Thanks for sharing.Yesterday I went to a funeral of a woman I have known since I was 15 years old, after the funeral at the grave side the pastor that conducted the funeral came over and asked me if that Challenger out there was mine, I told him it was. He said I know those cars are powerful but are they comfortable, I assured him they were, but would you like to go sit in it and see for yourself, I really would like that. Well come on, I opened it and let him get in it, and he was like a kid and he remarked on just how comfortable it actually was. Walking back he commented that he couldn't have anything like that he would kill himself in it.
I told him, no you wouldn't, as a pastor knowing God through Jesus Christ, anytime you get wild in it, you'll be reminded who you are, and what you represent, and you will tone it down. At least that is exactly what has happened to me because that car is a gift from God to me, He has allowed me to have it, because He delivered me from 17 years of drug use. Of which at the time of getting saved I had absolutely nothing, and everything I have today came from God. Amen to that! Ry
I LOVE that answerits not just this generation, years back, when i had gotten out of the service, i had reopened my diner, same location,
place. so i had the extreme, and i mean extreme satisfaction of denying them service. when asked why, i told them two reasons, one, in case you put your dumb kid on the table top and two, because i effin can.
