Wilson “Jumpstart” Begay

Wilson “Jumpstart” Begay bought a used ’64 Ford pickup when he got back from Nam. Every time he turns off the ignition he has to get a jump start, so he leaves the engine running because so many people laugh at him when he asks for a push. One afternoon while in Gallup he went into a Blake’s, and two men, who had just robbed a 7-11 jumped in and drove to their girlfriend’s apartment. When they all came out, the truck wouldn’t start. Before they could raise the hood, they were surrounded by police. Wilson got out of the squad car and told the officers, “That’s it. Can I have a push before you fellas leave?”
