((So it’s Munday, and I’m feeling really self-conscious about posting a pic of myself, so have this car instead. This is the car I plan to buy off my dad when I have the money. It’s a ‘77 Chevy Nova Concours and it’s amaaaazing! My plan is to buy it, restore it, and love it forever.
(WARING: Rant ahead!)
It needs a lot of work. But I’m willing to do it. Or hire someone to do it (I know very, very little about cars). It’ll get done. This car has been in the family for years, and it’s at risk of being abandoned. My idiot older brother f*cked it up pretty bad and a lot of my family members are saying it’s not worth the money to fix it up.
That’s a load of horse shit, in my opinion. This car belonged to my great grandma and then my grandpa after her, both of whom adored this car and have since passed on. It then belonged to my dad for a while, and he entrusted it to my older brother (bad decision) and now it’s being given to my cousin (possibly). My cousin wants to restore it as well, but… I don’t know, I feel like she won’t finish.
This car… I’m attached to it. In the years that my dad had it, I just… Adored it. And this is the only car that I’m not afraid to drive (I have a… discomfort with driving. Don’t know where it came from, as I’m perfectly fine with riding in cars, and I’ve never even driven much more than around a parking lot and nothing bad happened… *shrugs*). Not to mention, I loved my great grandma and my grandpa and how can you just give up on something that was so important to them???
I haven’t given up on this car, and it’s priceless in my eyes. I will pay whatever I need for however many years but I will buy it, I will restore it, and I will make sure that whomever gets it after me takes care of it until the car has run its course (which it certainly has not yet).
… So there. A little rant about me and my future car. Happy Munday!
(btw, if you’re wondering what it’s supposed to look like, more or less (though this one is a different color)…
