Long story short, I drowned this classic the first time I ever drove a car. I accidentally steered it into a flooded river backup area. It was a beauty, wasn't it?
I'll never forget the afternoon we had to come home and tell our parents I'd sunk the car. Bad scene! I think my mother's response was -- You're kidding me! If I remember right as we stood there dripping mud into the white carpet, my brother yelled -- Does it look like it!!!
My brother was two years older, so he took the brunt of the punishment for letting a 14-year old drive without a license. That was my first moving violation and I've never had a ticket since. When I do it, I go big!
