Another memorable episode of the Oldsmobile wagon was an evening she sent my step sister to pick me up from a skating party.  My step sister walked inside to pick me up.  When we got back to the wagon it wouldn't start.  She immediately started pumping the accelerator flooding the car.  
After 5 or 6 unsuccessful tries she went inside and called my mom who said she was on the way to help.  My step sister came back and got in the back seat.  "Aren't you going to try to start the car?" I asked.  "No.  Mom said I would make it worse and run the battery dead.  She told me to stop trying." 
Mom arrived about 15 minutes later with a ride from our neighbor.  She was pissed!  "I told you not to turn the car off, when you picked him up!"  "And I've told you how to start this car!"  "I'm sorry." My step sister replied.  "I left it running, but when I came back it was dead."  I think she lied about this!

Mom had on an 80's dress, tan pantyhose and the open pumps she had worn to work that day.  She got in and twisted the key Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.  She let off the starter and then held the accelerator all the way to the floor.  Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr---vrooo----RRRRRrrrrr-vrrrrroooooom-rrrrrrrrr.
The Olds sounded like it was clearing the flooded engine mess my step sister had created, but wouldn't quite turn over.

"Damn it!"  "COME ON!" my mom said.

Mom stopped cranking, but kept the accelerator on the floor -- Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr -vrrrroooooom ------rrrrrrrRRRRRRrrr-Vrrooom!  The V8 finally roared to life after about 2 straight minutes of cranking with the accelerator down.

She told my neighbor "Thank you for the help."  And we went home.

Very nice, loved that your mom was angry because she flooded the car. :-)

Excellent story.   Love these true tales from the past.  Your step sister was probably not much older than you were at that time.  Guess she totally forgot about (or didn't bother to follow) the "instructions" your Mom gave her regarding the car.   Thanks for sharing.
