re: What was your first car? - Ramblin Wreck
[quote]when I turned 14.[/quote] When I was growing up in Alabama, you could get a motorcycle driver's license when you turned 14. I graduated high school in 1984 and it was still that way then. That seems laughable now. When I was a freshman, the school bus driver was a 16 year old 11th grade...

re: What was your first car? - Ramblin Wreck
[quote]Great stories, y'all. [/quote] Thanks for all the responses and stories. I can't help but smile and laugh when I read some of them. Even if it was a piece of junk, most people have an emotional attachment to their first car. Especially if it was something you worked for. It may have be...

re: What was your first car? - Ramblin Wreck
[quote]Crazy. Mine was also a 1978 Spitifre. Blue. Passed down from my dad. He must have really loved me! Got mine in 1985. Every now and then I look on Craigslist and think about getting another one. One day I probably will. [/quote] Around 1992 I bought a 1969 Triumph TR6. It was a beautiful c...

What was your first car? - Ramblin Wreck
1978 Triumph Spirfire Bought it in 1984 when I was 17, the summer before going to college. I had worked two jobs and saved up $2408. Had a 40 hour a week day job and in addition to that worked in a restaurant four nights a week. I paid $2400 and had enough left over for a tank of gas....

re: Just got a new job making nearly 50k. - Ramblin Wreck
[quote]Seriously, I'd hold off on the car. Most cars are built to go well over 100,000 miles, so you probably don't really need one, though I can understand the want for one. [/quote] Agree. However when I got my first well paying job I traded in the green 1978 Corolla station wagon for a brand ...

re: Poll: Two-thirds of US would struggle to cover $1,000 crisis - Ramblin Wreck
The bigger the house, the greater the expenses. My three kids will all be in college next year and we will definitely be looking at down sizing. We have 3 AC units and a pool so every year there is a major expense just associated with something related to those. Each of our kids have cars, with h...

re: Do you keep all the closing documentation from real estate purchases? - Ramblin Wreck
[quote]Scan. You never said the age of these documents.[/quote] They range from 2 to 15 years. Just not sure why I would even need a scanned copy. I've never referenced them and the loans on some have been sold several times. If I ever need a legal description I can go to the appraisal office....

Do you keep all the closing documentation from real estate purchases? - Ramblin Wreck
Another spring cleaning question. I hate closing forms because they are on 8 1/2 x 14 paper and take up a lot of space in my filing cabinet. I'm considering trashing all of them. I have the paper work for both my rental and personal properties. Any reason why I need to hang on to this paper work...

What if shots had never been fired on Fort Sumter? - Ramblin Wreck
I wonder what would have happened if Fort Sumter had never been attacked. What if the southern states had just set up their own government, passed their own laws, and ignored the union without firing a shot? The emancipation proclamation wasn't made until 1863. Would the union had approached the ...

re: Best opening lines in songs - Ramblin Wreck

State Anarchy Continues - First legalize marijuana, next make abortion a felony - Ramblin Wreck
Looks like Oklahoma is making it a felony to give an abortion. Guess if you can do one, why not the other? I wonder if state law makers have decided that they don't really care what the federal government dictates. If the federal government looks the other way when states are not enforcing the la...

Anybody Remember SCTV? - Ramblin Wreck
Seems like it use to come on after Saturday Night Live. Many of the people in the show went on to become very successful in movies. (John Candy, Rick Moranis, Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy, etc.) Don't know why, but this sketch still cracks me up when I think about it [link=(https://www.youtube.c...
