Nice roller skates, for the most part. Let's get some Detroit Iron in there: Actual colors I had, too.
Lost control in reverse, hit a tree, which caught between the bumper and the trunk. Stuck it in first and the tree ripped out of the ground. Oops.
Sorry. 1948 Chevrolet Fleetline: $35.00
"Family car," right? Screw the ads. 312 cubic inch 4-bbl Holly. It laid patches 250 feet long. 1957 Ford Fairlane 500: $195.00
Now we're talkin'! 406 cubic inches, 405 BHP w/ tri-power (3-2bbl carbs) and a 411 rear end. It could do wheelies just by stepping on the gas. 1962
Ford Galaxie 500XL. $995.
They all got 10 MPG, but gas was 35 cents a gallon so nobody cared. Now I drive an Acura sedan: sedate, funless, but reliable.
