Car of the day…
FIRSTS. As a Marine, once it was my 'privilege' to drive a Radio Relay truck off LST 1167.
The Gunny told me have it in first gear (granny) when YOU hit the beach. The LST ship has a flat bottom and pulls into the beach. Granny is slow, so I was up a gear. I drove off into the sand, OUCH the gunny was right. I did a speed shift and sunk, spinning all 4 tires! The Gunny yelled and I knew Corporal Darnell was in trouble. A winch was hooked to me and the landing continued. It didn’t matter that others got stuck, he heard me shift gears and he knew I had not followed his orders.
That was a FIRST for me I had never stuck a truck and my FIRST time in Turkey.
A few years ago our Friends Buddy and DI took us for a ride in a Prius, our FIRST in an Electric Auto. Buddy hit the accelerator and I learned ‘Them dudes have some Torque.’
A few days ago a car passed us, I said, “Honey that is a Telsa!” The FIRST one I have seen on the road.
Two days ago I saw a black car darting in and out of traffic. Driving wild. He blew past me on the right cut in front of a car with just enough space to make it and he was out of sight. A few traffic lights later put me 2 cars back in another lane and I could see the car well. It was a Maserati ($152,000).
The FIRST one of those I have ever seen on the road. When the light changed he took off like a greased marble from under a fat man’s shoe.
Later Sherry and I went out to Hardees for Breakfast. My treat, I got change. Still later I noticed a wheat penny, checking, it was a 1945. I have never seen a 1945 copper penny. (1942-1945 no copper for pennies) This was a FIRST for me. Can you imagine my shock when I checked?
The first price listed on EBAY was $50,000, used. But shucks some were selling low, $4,500. Yeah I am keeping it safe. As everyone knows, Value of coins is in the eye of a collector. When you do not have a buyer, it is a penny for heaven’s sake, LOL
Friend Don has been reading about coin values, maybe I will sell it to him for $4,000. ;-)
Now after all that hullabaleau, you can ask what you like for any coin, but this one in actual value is much less.
