Married to Bill Abatecola for 45+ years. I heard most of his stories of cars, racing, boats, welding, art, cooking and life experiences. Always worth listening to the stories again and again.
Looking forward to at least another 45 great years! Unfortunately, Bill passed away December 10, 2021, after a 2-year battle with cancer.
Most times I am the quiet listener. Once in a while I like to put in a few comments or just put my spin on his musings.
- Bill takes the photos of all the cars and I upload them to the website after resizing them. NOW. I do both.
- I am pretty familiar with the details of all the cars we list on our website. I very strongly like to see photos of a clean car, especially the engine compartment, rugs, upholstery and trunk. I believe it makes not only a striking photo but it makes the statement “The owner of the vehicle (whether built it or modified or not) is proud of their ownership and care for it.”
- Here is the first one: On the YELLOW CAR Yellow Car Post Bill had a ball writing the story. He had to share our story of the Yellow Car game with the lady selling the car.
I love seeing our grandkids and even our adult children get into the game of Yellow Car Game-keeping track of how many yellow cars you see as you travel!
I could see the children of all ages were learning new skills and sharpening old ones! Such as integrity, strategy, memorization, counting, honesty, and having so much fun.
Laughter always filled our vehicle.
Imagine a 4-year-old knows there is a Yellow car around the corner on her street which she travels daily. She has to determine when is the righttime to shout out YELLOW CAR! She would keep track of everyone’s score and accurately and fairly. She would memorize the whole neighborhood. I of course for a long time never seemed to see a yellow car, I would notice the yellow flowers and the yellow curb. Kids were not letting me count those! More laughter and of course, shaking heads.
The fun continues!
