A week after the VW caught on fire my mother and grandpa pitched in for a replacement car. I remember it was a Saturday when I saw a brown Nova pull in the driveway. I believe it was a 1975. It was 2door with a bench seat, had a dent in the back and the back seat was missing the back of the seat.
The next day we get in it for church, I had to site in the middle of the front seat next to my mom and grandma, who had on their Sunday best. The car started right up and had no problems. I had a great view of course.

A few weeks had gone past, then months and the car ran fine. One day in school I was talking with my friends and they were talking about her old beetle and one of them said it was about time my mom got a new car and what a piece of crap the beetle was, and another said it wasn’t a piece of crap it was my mothers fault the car failed to start so often.

This took me back and I asked what he meant by that. He told me my mother flooded the car buy pumping the gas so much. I asked what that meant and he told me a lot about women who flood their cars and how you should never pump the gas pedal.

At the end of the week my mom would drive us to the bank after work to cash her check. This week was no different. We left the school and when we got to the bank she went inside while I waited in the car. While she was inside I decided that I would try to flood her engine, so I reached my foot over and started to pump the gas pedal. She was inside for ten minutes and I was flooding her car the whole time.

She came back and got in. She was wearing a red dress with white polka dots, suntan pantyhose and white shoes. She turned the key and the engine cranked but did not turn over. She tried it again, this time holding her foot down but it just cranked. She stopped, pumped the gas quickly about 5 or 6 times and tried it again, this time she kept her foot off the gas pedal. No luck. She stopped, and pumped the gas pedal quickly again and tried to start it, waiting a first but then pumping the gas pedal while she cranked it. She did this about five or ten times.

I Felt nervous about what I had done. I couldn’t stop watching her. After a while of this someone came over and offered to help. He said it smelled like it was flooded and asked my mom to open the hood. He took off the air filter and had her try to start the car. After a few more tries it started up and we were on our way. That was the first time I ever did that, but it would not be the last. I am not proud of this at all, it just is what it is. If it doesn’t freak people out I can write about other times I flooded her car.

 At times yes. She would pull herself up buy the steering wheel and say something like “come on please” and then the show was on. She would use her whole leg and she would be bouncing in her seat as she tried to start her car. Over and over again.

 Yes, please write about other times you intentionally flooded her car. Also, did your mom ever crank and pump in platform wedge sandals?

Great story, although my absolute favorites are genuine car troubles caused by the car itself or by the woman starting it. A great story though, eager to read more. :-)

That was interesting because I lived with friends that had a 86 chevy nova that I lived with and for a while I had a show every morning when my
roommate friend would start that car on the first attempt.  Another friend had a 72 nova that he drove to the place where we worked.  But also there
is a story where a woman could not tame an early 80's bronco and seemingly traded it in for a mid 70's nova like you mom's.  But anyway your stories
are good and let's hear more.

Nice.
I did a similar thing when my step sister was learning to drive.  My step sister drove us to the mall one day in my mom's Oldsmobile wagon.  I stayed behind to see if I could flood it (it wasn't hard to do).  I must have pumped that accelerator 200 times.

She and my mom both had on pantyhose.  My step sister had on a dress and mom had on business slacks and high heeled open toe sandals.  I remember the anticipation of waiting for them to come back and see if that wagon would start.

My step sister got in and tried to start the Oldsmobile 2 or 3 times, and it wouldn't start.  "Hold the pedal down" my mom instructed.  My step sister tried with the pedal to the floor and car still wouldn't start.  'Damn!" my mom yelled.  "Move over."

My mom scooted over and tried and tried to get that car to start, but it wouldn't.  She opened the hood trying to get someone to stop and help I guess.  I remember feeling bad that we were stranded.  The car would normally start if she held it on the floor long enough to clear the flooded engine, but not that afternoon.  Mom pumped and held the pedal and cranked and cranked.  The car would come close to turning over but wouldn't.  We ended up with a dead battery.

 The Nova wasn’t around for long, I will definitely get to that. Still a few more stories to tell about that car.
 Great replies from everyone. Very happy to find this place.
