If someone asked you "What is a Tin Lizzie"? What would you say?

Ah, but, Janet, in a man's view a 'Tin Lizzie' isn't *just* a car.  It is a Model T Ford!!!

His comment was probably about the 'Mazda Miata' being *just* a car!  Most men drool over them too!

That would be rather like telling a horse lover that an Arabian is *just* a horse!

And actually, Janet, the Titanic was not a boat.....she was a ship!!!  LOL

Well my sister in MN sends 5 questions that she gets from her boss every Tuesday. The question ask what a Tin Lizzie was.....well it was a car.....but we both got that wrong...

He said it was a Model T Ford.... but most of us didn't think that was the question....

Then he says something saying a Miria  is just a car...don't know how it was spelled but what ever it was could have been a female alligator for what everyone else knew we never heard of it...

It was one of those things were a man says we were wrong so my sis and I figure he is like the ad on tv where the guy drives the car into the garage with 2 bikes on top? Ever see that? That guy looked like he was trying to think of some way to blame it on his wife....lol...

I know it was a silly thing. If he had asked what the Titanic was I would have said a boat....lol

Tin Lizzie.....my first thought was "a Model T Ford".

But I understand there is a 'long arm' sewing machine now being called by that name as well.

Plus there are dozens of restaurants/pubs with that name!

Which did you have in mind, Janet?!!
