story:

flivver:

  1. Older Slang. an automobile, especially one that is small, inexpensive, and old.
  2. Slang. something of unsatisfactory quality or inferior grade.

The story behind this is that my dad is a famed dumpster diver and frequently stops to pick up stuff on the side of the road. It’s amazing how many perfectly good items he has and uses as a result of this. One of which is a name brand wakeboard in excellent shape that we’ve taken out on the lake for years.
