ACID FLASHBACK THURSDAY: Moon Unit Revisited

1985 Honda Civic wagon
Powered by a sewing machine motor

Where I saw one: down on the street, instead of  On the intertubes

Nostalgia factor: 3/10 – Ahh, memories – mostly not mine.

Baseline: 0, since I never personally owned one. +1 because mom had one, +1 because that one was a crazy moonwagon instead of an ordinary hatchback, -1 because it didn’t have a radio – stupid Honda made you choose from dealer installed extra cost radios and mom simply wouldn’t fork over an extra dime, +1 because I stole borrowed it to visit Madonna while mom was away, +1 because it led to a Wixom sexathon, +1 because for 20 years, including my entire marriage, banging her was the best sex ever, Read More

Oh, Thank Heaven

Somewhere in the wasted haze of being 20 something, I decided that maybe shit jobs at the car wash and the BK lounge were not all that satisfying.  Pod and OG were finishing college.  Phid’s college career was as off the tracks as mine, but we had community college bullshit.  His job at one restaurant […]

That one weekend

Madonna:  Come away for the weekend.  You can see Hillsdale College and all the places I fucked Stevens, my English professor, once he stole my innocence. Me:  Yay.  Overnight means maybe second base! Karma:  You can always dream! Madonna:  You can actually meet him in his shitty little apartment over a garage. Me:  oooo, impressive […]

1985 Dodge Omni

1985 Dodge Omni
Doesn’t GLH: 2.2L of badly running crap

Cracker and pops, switching out the Zephyr for a different piece of shit. Actually, this was a pretty good car, except that it freaked out at highway speeds. Madonna had to come pick me up one sexathon weekend, somewhere north of Ann Arbor, because it just refused to go faster than 55 – as if it had a governor. Read More

End of the Year Filler

Sucked suits against crazy ladies Didn’t suck getting fired from one Sucked getting fired from one for costing too much and taking too long Didn’t suck Winning everything I did. Winning everything I started and the other guy finished, on the arguments I made. Seeing that the case is still dragging on Didn’t suck ending […]

I was freaked, because they were all like weird looking and shit, compared to Escorts and Colts and shit piles like that, +1 because it could hum along at 80 with no drama, unlike the ’78 Camaro in Car and Driver (which overheated at that speed) or Ribble’s Subaru (which had a seizure and died).
