We decided a few weeks ago, to take our newly acquired blue car to the MS coast for Cruisin the Coast. We made it down with zero problems. I followed behind Wes and the kids in my jeep in hopes we’d all be riding home together.
We found a nice little spot not far from 49, that was shady and he a good parking lot. So we stopped there.
Later that day we went into Diamondhead, where my aunt and uncle just built a house. They were out of town, for the whole week, and said that we could still use their house, which was so nice, and helped us out tremendously.
Diamondhead had a nice little car show too, so we took the kids and old blue and went and looked around.
Lucy found her favorite ride, obviously covered in flowers.
The kids got to play in sand, and they loved that.
And they got to feed the fish, and they loved that.
The kids had a blast the whole weekend.
But Thursday. Thursday showed up and turned the trip into a Wesley Kirkley trip. He doesn’t have great luck, when it comes to old cars and going or coming or sometimes even looking. He’s broken trailers, trucks not fit on trailers and he’s had to make 2 trips (to Memphis!), he’s had blowouts, and breakdowns. Pretty much every trip we go on, we are a little nervous, because of what always happens. This year was no different.
We started toward the beach on Thursday, got to 90, and the car flooded. So it wouldn’t crank. We left it, came back and it did fine for the rest of the trip. Just a little trash in the carburetor. No big deal.
Then Thursday evening, on his way back to Diamondhead…
The only way to take it to get it fixed was to buy 4 cinderblocks, put the car on them, drive my car to Biloxi, to drop off the wheels and wait. By 6pm in Friday, the car was back going. With 4 brand new tires and $500 less dollars.
We really classes up my Aunts brand new home.
After that, the rest of the trip was pretty easy.
We took it out Friday night and rode the strip. The kids played in the sand behind us while we sat and watched the cars go by.
Overall, the car did really well. It’s quite a fun car to even ride in, which is even more smooth now with 4 new tires.
We are hoping it sells, but are actually okay now if it doesn’t. It’s a boat, but it’s a boat that runs really well, drives really well, and we could move in if we needed to its so big.
We had fun, but I’m glad to be home. Thank you, 300, for getting Wes home safe and for a fun weekend.
