Bunk’s Second Ride: Pre-Babe Magnet

by

Definitely not a babe magnet, but at that age I wasn’t interested and didn’t care.

I remember cruising around a lot in this rockin’ mobile (in my mind, in the basement, in my underwear) with the (imaginary) wind blowing through my flattop, and every station on the (pretend) radio playing either “WipeOut,” “Beechwood4-5789,” or “Witch Doctor.” No commercials.

And I’d completely forgotten about all of that until I slowly cruised through a Russian website.  As soon as I spotted an Original BunkMobile, I jammed my right foot through the cardboard box brake pedal, broke the the toilet plunger dowel that served as an emergency handbrake, and  I spun out on Dead Man’s Curve.  With quick reflexes, I recovered in time to right-click and click “Save Image As.”  No injuries, no damage;  brakes are good, tires fair.

—————————-

But that was my second ride.  My first ride was a chrome steel tube framed chair that hooked over the back of the front seat of Poppa Strutt’s 1960 Chevy BelAire.

The red-vinyl seat came equipped with a cloth cinch-belt, a little plastic steering wheel with a horn that Pappa Strutts dismantled before I knew that it was supposed to beep, and absolutely nothing to anchor the car seat to the car.

It was designed so that on an emergency stop, the Lil’ Roadmaster Car Seat launches Lil’ Roadmaster into the rearview mirror to prevent Lil’ Roadmaster’s noggin from penetrating the windshield. Pure efficient genius.

Which brings up a good question:  Why aren’t we all dead?

    Brilliant Chevy BelAire! I want it!

  2. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Seems to me the original paint job did not include the black detail around the rocket tail lights. Note the fender skirts!

    You must be about a hundred.

    Diesel–

    $165 for you, but I’m only $15 for your wife. Ooh wait, you’re talking years?

    Little over 7 in dog years. Now go fix the post-links to Humor-Blogs.com that don’t work on WordPress. Like you didn’t have enough to do already.

    p.s. That Bill Maher book you sent… I lent it to a lib friend alongwith a copy of the Quran. He flushed the Maher.
