Six Sentence Sunday

“Dennis’ll be a happy man. Say, he said you’ve been asking about that old Pinto he’s got parked in his barn. What would you want with that hunk of junk? You’ve got a truck.”


Bryce closed the access panel on the tractor and tightened the wingnuts. “I was thinking it might be a good figure-­‐‑eight car.”

From Sucker for a Hot Rod.

  2. My mom had a Pinto when I was very young–she drove it until there were holes in the back floorboards…we used to throw my little brother's old toys through the hole to see what would happen! Great six!

  3. Tanya – from your lips to God's ears! Thanks so much!Bglashbrooks – I bet your mom loved that. My brother had a truck where the floorboards rusted away too. Made climbing in and out of the cab a bit dicey. 🙂

  7. Had pinto beans once or twice. My spouse even owned a Pinto horse once but never owned a Pinto car. Yeah, they'd make a great figure-eight car, just don't get hit in the rear end

  10. Thanks everyone for stopping by. I could be mean and say you have to buy the book to find out what a figure 8 car is for, but I won't. 🙂 I figure 8 race is a cross between a car race and a demolition derby and the track is in the shape of an 8 instead of an oval. You use pretty much the same cars that you would for a demolition derby. They are a lot of fun to watch. Our county fair has one every year.
