Just some thoughts:
Do you remember your first car?
“With a car, a man could scorch the dusty back roads, roll proudly through town, spin a donut in the Tastee-Freeze parking lot, and take his girl to a romantic hilltop.”
First car–1949 Chevy–
Second car—1955 Ford Crown Victoria
(A major mistake)
Third car– 1954 Chevy
Graduated college in 1964 and sold this “jewel”—1954 Chevy- to a coal mine worker for the grand total of $35.00. Car had no working heater/ one window half knocked out/ only one working wiper/ part of floor board missing on passenger side/ right rear door would not open/ and car had been side-swiped. My dad over heard him say “I need a piece of junk to drive to the mines.” My dad told him, “My son has just the car for you.”
But———upon that graduation I bought the one listed below.
If I may—play upon words a bit. “When I was a child, I acted as a child, I thought as a child—but when I became a man I put away childish things.” Like an old 54′ Chevy and moved into a better set of wheels.
To again quote ole Billy Faulkner: “People will pay any price for motion.” And some even more for the “style in which that motion happens.”
Current–1965 Corvette–fella still needs transportation….
and 1955 Ford Thunderbird
Man should not live by ” bread….uh one old car alone.”
