Default Only a Man Can Understand...



Robert was a banker in Cleveland, Ohio in 1964... And it was a good year for him. So much so, in fact, that he decided to buy his and hers Rivieras for both him and his wife - Lauren. Her hips hadn't spread yet, so kids weren't a concern. Dual Rivis ...

You're right, they were genius's, but you do a most excellent job on your writing too.

That scarf flying out the window made me think of Isadora Duncan.....

Great commercial, and I love your last paragraph, Ryan... "Robert took notice of nature." Yes, indeed!

And of course in '65 Buick would be right there with the perfect wagon...

Sweet Nancy was so fancy
To get into her pantry
Had to be the aristocracy
The members that she toyed with
At her city club
Were something in diplomacy
So we put her on the hit list
Of a common cunning linguist
A master of many tongues
And now she eases gently
From her Austin to her Bentley
Suddenly she feels so young

I can't deny it
With that smile on her face
It's not the kill
It's the thrill of the chase

Geeze, the earworms are hitting me hard on this one - I can hear the tune, and now the chorus makes perfect sense (feel it coming (?)), but what's the title of it and the artist/band? I've always wanted to know what the lyrics were. So that it can be semi on-topic I would belt out the refrain in my '63 Galaxie while listening to the album rock station in Omaha and cruising Dodge Street on a Saturday night, but that was the early '80s.

I bought a 65 Rivi when i was 17, it was kinda a pos, but not super bad, it looked good on the outside but had hidden rust, i only paid $500 for it,i had to redo all the brakes and a few other things, it was gold outside and if i remember right tan inside, it had the 401 and st400, man that sucker would go, it was the first car i had the would get second gear rubber, and huge burnouts, i loved that car, it was just such a neat car, since then ive had 4 more, 2 parts cars and 2 other decent ones, dunno why i didnt keep one, i guess i always saw something different on the horizon i liked better.

Poor Lauren...she's only slightly more intelligent than an Irish Setter. Hahahaha
Fortunately for Lauren, with Robert's shrewd reasoning, he chose her over the dog.

After a little change in his pocket from selling the Jockey, the countdown to Ryan buying the Riviera he has been lusting over (and deserves) begins in 3...2...1...

My Dad had a '63 Riv when I was a kid, like maybe 6 years old but that car made a lasting impression on me. Pale creme/yellow with a light leather interior. When my (much older) brother came back from Viet Nam Dad handed him a set of keys and told him to use the pickup to get around. Then said "No, wait: those are the keys to the Riv. Welcome back, the car is yours". Man, I need to find some pictures and get them scanned...
