I was digging through some old pictures on my computer, looking for a picture of my race car to post on another thread. When I came across some pictures of a practical joke my son pulled on me for April Fools day a couple of years ago, so I thought I would share.

Imagine waking up to this as you rushed out the door on your way to work....

Drat! Foiled again. That's awesome, I think I would have cleared the windows and lights and driven it.

That's what happens when a Lumina and a DeLorean have a baby.

They wrapped the tires separately. It's a nice touch, and you just don't see it enough these days.

That's cruel. I couldn't imagine having to drive a Lumina.

They're surprsingly not miserable. Buddy had one 'cause he was 6'4+ and over 250 lbs (biker build) and he actually fit in it, and he commuted an hour (each way) though a canyon/twisty-mountain road everyday with no complaints. And yes, he was a fairly aggressive driver at the time, so if it had a lack of power or handling, he would've bitched about it.

When the Lumina first came out I saw one in a hard right corner with the inside rear wheel off the ground. Still had the driveout tags.

So he was mute? Cummon, the Lumina did NOT have handling prowess by any stretch of the imagination. Unless you are used to the handling of a slinky on greased stairs.

A Lumina is, at its very best, a transportation appliance.

It was a limited time deal. I only had the car about a month. I was given to me, I fixed it up, drove it for a couple weeks, and sold it. Not a horrible car, but not one I would rush out and buy either. I'd consider it an "appliance" car. Gets you from point A to point B.

The Grand Cherokee is the daily driver/ tow vehicle.

I saw a car get completely papered in Taco Bell tray liners once, during a misty rain.
