I couldn't resist the urge to participate in Bonnie's Throwback Thursday linkup, so I swiped this picture from my mom's facebook. I realize that the quality is terrible, but mybe she just blurred my face so that people wouldn't know it was me driving that beast of a car.
Despite Ralph's terrible exterior, he was a great car. He drove like a dream and never caused us any problems. He was a six seater, which came in handy on more than one occasion. Sometimes when my sister would drive my brother to school, he would make her drop him off down the street so that other kids wouldn't see him arrive in Ralph. One day my mom picked my sister up from school in him and my sister told her to never do that again because people would think we were poor. It's one thing for a 17 year old to be driving Ralph, it's a completely different thing to be a parent driving him.
As ugly as he was, you really can't complain when you are a teenager who is lucky enough to have a car. My sister might disagree with that though, I don't think she appreciated Ralph the way I did.
