My son was getting real tardy and disinclined about eagle, so we offered
$5,000 worth of automobile after he got eagle, else he was stuck with the
family junker (BumperSnicker: you have to be really secure to drive this
car). Well, he did the eagle (still ot sure if the $ bait helped), and got
into a difficult teenage period (independent minded) when we went car
shopping). End result, he bought a 73 Opel GT (real cute fun car) that
needs lots of work, so he's not driving it, and drives the junker instead!
So my tale is probably one of how not to do it.
