I got to drive LN's 94 Geo Prism for the first time last week, even though she's had it tucked into what used to be my garage for 10 years.
Once I shoehorned in behind the wheel, at the airport, while the Deputy stared at me, I found out the thing that's supposed to be the PRNDL handle is the wiper switch.
Then I started doin laps of the airport road. Since the nice Deputy told me I could go as fast as I wanted, I let the Geo out. For a 4 cylinder halfpint, that car actually has some get up.
Bein the nice guy I am, every time stopped in front of the terminal, I waved to the Deputy. By the 4th lap, I was askin if he was keepin count.
I gotta tell yoou one thing though, that car wasn't built for size 11 boots. LN came walkin in the next day with the fuseblock cover in her hand askin if I knew where it was supposed to be. I told her probably in the dash. She told me to go put it where it belonged, with that while you still can look onher face.
Did I mention she says it gets a lot of miles to the gallon of gas?

When it had <1000 miles on it, it was rear ended=>sent into the car in front of it, spun around and hit again. Original owner bought it back from the insurance company since it was totalled. Drove str8 so he drove it as is, It has been passed around just like that since 1993. CHEEP TRANPORTATION
