I have a red vehicle that goes at least 60 mph. I don't have a picture, but can you ID it from the description?

Seriously, give us something to go on...

I bet Ken is right! Do the flowers stink? If so, I'm really betting that Ken is right!

I bet you might also be able to guess what my vehicle is too, but you still wouldn't know for sure without more info and you sure wouldn't likely be able to identify the exact model!

70 pinto ... right???? .. figure a good used one.. is your in your price range ... rotflmbo .. hatchback too .. for use in the garden ...

tisk tsk ... one shouldnt mock a newbie .. some of them a skittish.. and might run away ....

regardless of brandon.. welcome to GW ... i will take care of his lack of wit .. [BTW we are friends.. so dont mind us]

but if you could add some descriptive words.. it would help us ...

F&F ... where do you want the shiny nickle sent.. lol ... and why do i have privets with good smelling flowers.. the yellow one.. is it not a privet.. like the green ones???


ps: does boxwood flower.. since that might be another other option

Here is a link that might be useful: link

Ken - I've not come across that deciduous boxwood 10 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Is it a local one to your region??

Could be lots of things - maybe even lilac.

p.s. yes, box flowers. But not so as you'd notice.

Brandon is in Tennessee also. He can hop in his Pinto and check it out in person, then let us all know.

Don't forget the camera.
