The Dinkmobile Saga: The Deer

If you ever owned a shitty car that lasted for years and wouldn't die, call it the Dinkmobile.

Jimmy once owned a '97 Plymouth Neon, he got it back in high school in our senior year. He owned it for a good 5 years before he finally upgraded to his new one. We called it the Dinkmobile due to the fact that the first set of his license plate read DNK, that's how the name came to be. This car survived everything that was thrown at it, from shopping carts to cars running into the side panels this car was well alive even after he got rid of it.

We were all leaving Will's house one night, Myself, Jarrett, Mike and Jimmy all drove since we all drove at one point. Mike left first cause he wanted to rush home and sleep before he had to work at Shoprite in the morning. Though he never works, just hangs out in the janitor's closet all day only coming out to mob the floors. Jim drove first followed by myself and Jarrett. We were all driving on the main road and Jimmy being the daredevil driver he is, was driving like a bat out of hell. A car was coming in the other direction when suddenly the car swerved like the guy was drunk or somethin, Jimmy hit his brakes and all I saw was the ass end of his car jump up in front of me. Luckly I was several car lengths behind Jim so I didn't hit him. I swerved around what appeared to be a huge box of some sort and Jarrett did the same.

We all stopped to see what had happened and what did was that the other guy who was coming down the road had hit a deer. After the deer bounced off the guy's SUV, it came into our lane right in front of Jim and he had no time to react and ran it over. Now when I mean that Jim ran the deer over, he ran the fucker completely over! The other driver came up to see if we were okay and I saw his big SUV had a big chunk of his bumper missing, while Jim's car had no damage at all! If anything there was deer hair all over the front plate and under the car. The deer however did not survive the incident, so what do we responsible guys do? Throw it in back of Jarrett's Jeep and take it to the butcher for venison burgers!

So what did we learn out of all this? A '97 Plymouth Neon has more durability than a 2006 SUV. They were some good burgers by the way.

  1. Older car are always more realiable for some reason. My old VW Golf have not had any breakdown in the past 5 years, while my family's new Honda - more than thrice in the same time period.

  4. You haven't lived unless you've owned a shitty car, although the Neon didn't sound so shitty in the end.
