sometime in the early '70's my dad and uncle took me to a baseball game to see the yankees play the Oakland A's. we drove down in our '66 chevy and we had those tasty, dirty water, hot dogs they sell. i brought my baseball glove with me for two reasons, one in case a foul ball came our way and two in the case of an injury and they had no one else, i could fill in and save the game. i was a just a little kid. our seats were so high that after the game it took us a long time to get back out of the stadium but when we did the exit put us in front of the A's bus. my uncle grabbed my glove went over to a window and passed it inside to one of the players and asked if they would sign it for me.......they all did and passed it back out to me. Vida blue and rollie fingers signatures were on it. valuable? probably this was my only glove and we did not have money for another one so i played with the glove, would show other team mates coaches etc....i had fun playing with it but the glove got old and the autographs became hard to read....... it was just my baseball glove. while talking with my dad about his hot rod back when he was a kid, i asked him where he parked it, stored it for the winter, wether he covered it, etc.... he said, it was just my car, he parked it in the driveway, parking lots, and he never thought about covering it. he tells the story of when he drove it down a street and some guy backed out of a driveway into the side of the front fender. the guy told him to drop it off at his buddies garage and they fixed it for him. mad? annoyed but it was just his car and they did a decent job fixing it. so as i am getting the car done, build thread here; http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/...or-a-cool-change.863287/page-26#post-10940982. can this car ever be just my car? hard to think it could, as i have more money in it than i had spent on my first four years mortgage payments back in the 80's. even tho i had driven it in high school, took it on dates, travelled all over it was never just a car. so does anyone out there treat their car......as just a car?
