Quote from MMM on Yesterday at 11:59am:
I'm sorry to hear about the Granada, Greg.  What happened?  Did you get hurt?

 
I was coming home from a night class at college and was heading through a very quiet intersection near my house where the cross traffic has a stop sign but I did not. Anyway I'm heading through the intersection and an elderly lady goes through the stop sign about 50mph while I'm doing 45 and I crash right into her driver side front wheel area swinging her car into the side of mine. I spun around a few times and my car was destroyed but besides some minor whiplash and a bump to me knee I was fine. She was unconscious for a while but ended up being fine as well.  
 
I will have to dig up some pictures of the car, it was in great shape my goal was to have it professionally repainted and to keep it as a "weekend car" for cruising around in and stuff. Oh well, the important things was everyone ended up being ok.

The weather in early Summer 2013 was horrific, I think it poured all of June and half of July almost every day. I have never seen it rain as hard as I did some of those days. We really lucked out with a beautiful week at the end of July and August stayed nice as well.

Ah yes Patty's Party World! That's been a landmark for us since we started going down, we noticed it on our first trip down and now I always look for it.

Well what do you know?!  Smiley  Here's a video posted by Funchase!  Droid was right in his memory about the proximity to the first Mack's.

And if you zoom all the way in on Bing Maps "Bird's Eye" view, you can still see what appears to possibly be the outlines still remaining of where the trampolines were (in the lot directly across from the Caprice motel's pool).  Cool  Whatever they are, they're not parking spaces.

The two main reasons for me to buy a car...
 
1. Work Roll Eyes
2. Go to Wildwood! Cheesy
 
Reverse the order! Wink
