The night was one of English'r fln,orite dates. (  ,, , *,, .... '.2  Owners, students dislike junk cars Ryan Staley Reporter We've all seen those rusted out hunks of steel with wheels that some students call cars. When they are passed, people say, "How the heck can someone drive that?" Or, "Who owns that turd?" Matt Wright, senior, is one of the unfortunate souls who owns one. Wright drives a 1972 Ford F250. It is hand painted in about eight different colors with enough dents in it to keep a body shop busy for months. Wright said, "It sucks; it sound like a train and it smokes like a stoner." Wright bought the truck for one dollar froln his grandpa. Wright doesn't believe that he will sell his embarrassing "'72" because no one in their right mind would buy it. A man who has seen all types of cars come and go from Borah is drag team coach Dave Emry.. He has seen cars that look like they belong in a garbage yard get started up and driven away. Emr), said that one ),ear he saw a kid who would have two of his friends help him start his car ever3., day. They pushed his truck about 20 feet so he could pop the clutch and get his vehicle going. "It made me laugh, but at least it got him from point A to point B," Emry said. Steve Kujawski. senior, also has a vehicle he endearingly refers to as "crappy." He drives a 1983 Plymouth Horizon that does not always start. When it does start, it sometimes doesn't stay rinning for long. "It ahvays needs to be repaired, but I never fix it," Kujawski said. It has its fair share of dents, but Kujawski leaves them alone. His friends are the ones who run into him. Kujawski is worried that his car may not be working by the end of the 3'ear, and that he may have to drive a golf cart to school. "My car once got frozen to the gutter, and I couldn't come to school," he said. He also wants to sell his car when he can. While passing those junkers in the parking lot, remember-, the owners think that their cars are just as ugly as y'ou do.

Ketchu:n's girlfriend from Eagle High School decided to surprise him by taking him to Tableroek for a date. She told him that she was getting scared because of the road. They were turning around when the back end of the car got stuck in a ditch. "She's a real bad driver and wc slid down a ditch and the back end was stuck in the ditch and xe got high ccntcrcd gie jusi started to cry. Then some guy pulled us out.
