I came home form Elmhurst Hospital (Chicago) in a 1967 Chevy Impala 2dr. 327 and a 4 Speed.
Brought my daughter home from hospital in a 1954 corvette, Building her a 1931 sedan hi-boy right now.
A blue 46 Buick Roadmaster. My Dad was a Chevy man and was on the list for a new Chevy after he got out of the army in 46. His salesman buddy called him to come look at the 46 Roadmaster that a doctor had just traded in cause his wife wanted something smaller. The old man took a ride in it and he loved it. From that day until the day he died there was always a Buick in our driveway. Must be why I like Buicks so well.
1960 Plymouth Fury. I wish we still had it.
It was Sept 1971, and I came home in my folks' 68 Plymouth Roadrunner. Dad bought it new when he got back from Vietnam.

This car. That is my mom (rip) and my two sisters. The little one is only 11 months old in the pic. I was another year and a half away. But my dad says this is the car.
