Writespiration #104 52 Weeks in 52 Words Week 8 – Choke


If you pulled it out too far you flooded the carburettor. You had to judge just how far and that depended on the time of year. Winter needed more than summer. Our old car had a mind of its own. But we loved it. Mum called it Blossom, it never failed us.

  1. Ha! My old mini would start in all weathers without the choke, but if she stalled once warm, there was no chance of getting her going again!

  2. I love how you used that word. I think far too many people wouldn’t even think of that possibility.

    Love this!! my mind went back to my old Renault that had a hand coke…in cold winter mornings here in Quebec, I would ride on it half pulled out until it was warm enough. I still miss that car!
