    Like all good Americans from our era, I've always loved cars. My folks had MG's and Fords in the 60's. My dad has a '53 MG-TD both my brother and I would fit in the compartment in the back. My crazy mom drove a T-Bird, an MG-A and then bought a new '67 Galaxie 500 convertible. She'd drive that thing over 100 MPH in the desert on the way to Mexico with my brother and I in tow. The top was almost never up on that thing. A stack of beach towels lived in the car permanently to avoid 3rd degree burns from solar-heated upholstery (with chrome emblem branding irons). We had several 65-67 Mustangs. I always leaned towards Chevy's though I admire a car with the distributor up front. That always made sense to me. I've had a dozen or so 69-72 Chevy pickups, love 'em, and had a '66 Caddy Calais coupe for a time. I was searching for a Bonneville or Grand Prix and found the '63 Buick LeSabre I'm now driving home to AZ from Chicago on Route 66. Lived in Flagstaff, AZ for 20 some years and LOVE the Mother Road. If you're ever in too good of a mood, read John Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath. You get a good feeling for the Road.
