Harry buys a used car.....

We last met Harry Castleman when he enticed me to order him a mail order bride......Harry is expecting his bride to arrive any day now, and has decided he needs a car. He doesn't mind taking the bus, but he thinks his new bride would certainly enjoy a car of their own.  Harry hops on the village bus and rides out to Smitty's Used Cars...on the outskirts of Dollhouse Village....we certainly don't want a used car business inside the village!

That must be Smitty standing outside...waiting for a customer. Harry decides to take a look at Smitty's cars.

What have we here? Looks like a '50 or '51 Oldsmobile convertible and also a 2 door pink...must be a repaint!  Where does Smitty find these classics?

Hmmn. Is that Smitty....or a Burt Reynolds  impersonator ?

Harry looks at the bright pink Olds first...and thinks there is not much headroom in this car. And probably too flashy for his new bride-to-be too.
Next, Harry looks at the convertible and remembers when he was young... and wanted a fine black convertible just like this one.

Smitty saunters over to see if he can interest our guy in a "good" used car ...
Harry's eyes are suddenly drawn to the red Corvette..
and he walks around the black convertible to check it out.
Smitty suggests a test drive...

and he doesn't have to make the suggestion Harry speeds away.
Yelling SOLD!, Harry  almost runs over Smitty when he returns...
Smitty and Harry go inside to close the deal.
Driving up to his home, Harry takes a good look and thinks maybe it needs some sprucing up before Sophie gets here.
He gets out to take a closer look and he realizes his stepping stones have completely faded away...paint could use a little touch up too. Better give a call to that dollhouse lady...she may be retired, but he has some work that will keep her busy. Ha ha ha!
Now....what was her number? Or should he just stick his head out the open side of his house and give her a yell-out?
We leave Harry....
standing on the porch and gazing fondly at his shiny new 1954 Corvette.
This story to be continued....


  1. Fantastic story! I'm waiting anxiously for the next installment! xo Jennifer

  2. Oh a nice story to start the day. So many beautiful old cars. The whole car sales stage, so beautiful and lifelike made​​. It is a really nice setup you have made. Thank you.

  3. Great story. Buying your own car isn't as easy as it seems. There are a lot of things that one must consider.

  4. Wonderful! I thought the thug leaning against the wall in picture four was waiting to hit Harry over the head and steal his wallet.
    Looking forward to see what happens next.

  5. Love it!! Harry is one lucky guy with a bride on the way and a dollhouse lady to help him get ready. I can't wait for the next chapter.

  6. That's great! I especially like the guy lurking by the side of the building!

  7. Great story! Enjoyed it a bunch! I think the car lot is an awesome place! Love the idea! He has very nice home,also. Hope his new wife is worthy! Also hope she likes the Vette and doesn't yell at him for not letting her pick it out! HA!HA! Can't wait to see what happens when she arrives!!!

  8. Should it be called "Shady's Used Cars?" Oh so funny. Thanks for entertaining the whole world. Love that old fireplace. I hope Harry's new bride ain't a big girl because she won't fit. :)

  9. Really its wonderful post. looking so nice......

  10. Wow! You've been busy and added so much. I love the car lot and can't wait for Harry's bride to arrive. Don't ever give those little creatures your phone number--it's always something with them!
