Getting Bluebird (My Firsr Car)
JUL
30

It all started early July 2012, my grandpa one day brought a light blue 97 Explorer up to the washbin of his car lot and asked if I, his 15 year old grandson would like that car, naturally I said yes. Since then, my grandpa put in a new transmission, alternater, battery line, as well as a battery, he even insured it, I can’t wait to start makin memories with Bluebird, named after 2 songs by Electric Light Orchestra. The road ahead awaits many memories to be had, soon mine of first car ownership will start.
