"Who's Honking?"
By Tammy Scarbrough

1     Dad was finally buying a motorized car. We were so excited! It wasn't new, but that was alright with us. We lived on a farm and only had a horse and buggy to take us wherever we needed to go, so having a car was going to be great.
2     Dad decided on a used Model T Ford. It wasn't hard to pick which color we wanted because there were only three choices - black, black, or black. It has been said that Henry Ford told his workers that they could paint the Model T's, "any color you want, as long as it's black." Now, it's really never been proven that he said that, but he could have. The car also had a horn button located under the dash, so it would be easy to honk if you needed to. We thought it was pretty neat to have a horn on the car.
3     It was time for our first drive. We set out on a Sunday morning in our best clothes. My brother and I were sitting in the back seat while Dad was driving. We lived out in the country where all the roads were dirt. It had been raining for a few days, but it was sunny on this day. While the roads were wet and muddy, cars would drive down them and create sunken paths on the sides of the road. Once the sun dried out the road, these paths became ruts that were hard to get out of once you got stuck in one. We experienced these ruts on our first drive. Dad was steadily trying to get out of the rut so that he could get back onto the road.
