Driver’s license in hand!
I’m not sure who was more excited Mom or me.
Mom bought a new car.
I paid her $100.00 for her old one –
A 1969 Gold Pontiac Custom S, 350 V8, 4-door.
Mom was free from Midnight pickups from High School Basketball games. I transported my friends home from the games, making their parents happy as well.
I no longer had to borrow the car.
Squeak!!! What’s that? As I came to a stop.
A trip to the garage.
Yikes!!!! $400.00 for Brakes, Rotors and Drums.
Cost of car repairs, a hidden realization.
Savings account shrank.
After school, I walked with the cash in my pocket.
Ransom paid for my freedom.
