MY CAR - (CREATIVE WRITING BY JF)
I have owned only two cars
in my life. The first car I owned was a 1991 GEO Storm. It was red and had a hatch back. I
thought it looked really cool being as though it was my first. I paid only $8,000 cash for
it. Now I look back on it I think I paid too much for it. I was only 21 at the time, and
when youre that young and youre getting your first car there isnt
anything anyone could say to you that would make you change your mind.
I had the car for 7 years
until one day in 1998 I was driving to the car wash in Salem and the engine started
smoking. I was only about a half a block from the Hill Crest Chevy dealer and so I decided
to pull in so they could take a look at it. While my car was being looked at I took a walk
around the car lot. I looked and looked but I didnt see any cars that caught my eye
until I turned around. I saw one of my favorite cars in the whole world.
It was the Mitsubishi
Eclipse. I test drove it and my second time out I decided to buy it. She is a beauty.
Shes the color money, with silver rims. She has a black hat that slides back, but
always stays in tack. She never looks dull when Im ridin to the mall.
Shes so fine and shes mine.
