Pretty White for a Fly Guy

Don't worry, I'm still very much here.  This week's word was given to us by Mr. Manuel and his choice was WHITE.  I could go the obvious route and post a picture of myself, but I've already done that a few times.  I also could have taken a picture of my front yard on Christmas morning, but it was not white at all.  As a matter of fact, yesterday (Saturday, Dec. 27) was 65°F.  So, I decided to make this a dual-purpose post and post a flashback of sorts.  As many of you long-time regulars may know, I owned two WHITE cars in my life, back to back.   [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="400" caption="September 1992-November 1999"]September 1992-November 1999[/caption] This is my 1990 Chevy Cavalier.  This was a fun car to drive and I did drive it quite a bit.  When I finally traded it in in November 1999, it has 104,000 miles on it. What did I trade it in for?   [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="400" caption="November 1999-June 2003"]November 1999-June 2003[/caption] My 1997 Chevy S-10 Blazer.  1997 was the last year that Chevy built the Blazer on the S-10 frame.  I only kept it until 2003 because of transmission problems and a few other issues.  So, I used it as a trade-in to get my current current car which does not fit the word of the week.   [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="400" caption="June 2003-Present"]June 2003-Present[/caption] This is my 2003 Mazda Protege 5.  As you can see, it's red.  I think this post fits both Saturday Scavenger Hunt and Planet Flashback.  Have a good weekend and I will be around before 2009.
