The Winners for "You Supply the Caption"

Before I announce the winners, here's the story behind this car.

When Zack was four, we went on a nature hike in the Tuckahoe State Park.  La dee dah dee dah, here we go walking through the woods, when I look to my left.  What the what?   Over the side of the path, in a shallow ravine, lay this car.

I was flummoxed.  We were on a NATURE TRAIL.  No road in sight.  It's like it dropped down from the sky.

We were with a school group, and wouldn't you know it, I didn't have my camera.  When we got the kids back to the bus, I asked the driver to PLEASE wait so I could take a picture.  I ran, huffed, and puffed as fast as I could back to the ravine and shot a few quick shots.  It's one of my favorite things in my "Abandoned" Flickr set.

And now for the winners -- yes, multiple!  I asked Zack to help me pick the best and we just couldn't stop laughing.  So here are the winners and what they captioned this photo with:

"when do you think insurance is gonna pay the claim for this?"

"Your Mileage May Vary"

and my very favorite:

"On Craig's List: Great car, low mileage, unique paint treatment, gently used. 
OOAK, cash only, GPS coordinates for viewing upon request. "

Thanks for playing!   I think I'll be doing this sort of post more often!
