Who knew that marriages made in heaven sometimes start with less-than-dreamy honeymoons?
Only 24 hours after the wedding, the car they borrowed from his brother broke down in the booming metropolis of Unadilla, Georgia and the only option my parents had was to call my grandparents to come and rescue them.
So, with the $50 the mechanic offered for the car, they loaded up in my grandaddy's '69 Dodge Charger (along with my grandmother and my aunt who was just a teen-ager at the time) and that's how they spent their honeymoon.
It's the story we've all loved and laughed about for years in our family.
And even though I wasn't around for that one, it was the start of many more great memorable road trips we've had. It's not always the destinations that we remember the best, but the time spent along the way that we love.
Pretty much everyone has a great road trip story to tell from some point in their life, even if it's just the everyday trips taken in a special car . And right now, Cooper Tire is giving you the opportunity to share yours. From now through March 29, you can enter Cooper Tire's My Every Day Road Trip Contest by submitting your story, photo, or video on the company's Facebook page.
The top written story will win a $100 gift card for gas for a week, while the top photo will win a $500 gift card for gas for a month! The top 5 vidoe entries will each win a set of Cooper tires and will advance to the final phase of the contest where the Facebook fans will be able to vote for their favorite. Voting will begin on April 15.
