Recently my ride was the '62 Chevy. It seems to be our favorite as it is the car we dated in, used as our main transportation for several years, & have always kept. (Although one day he came dangerously close to trading it off for a Corvette!)
Bob drove this car nightly to his job as caboose man for Rock Island Railroad. During our Kansas City years, he began showing the '62 at local car shows, including Darryl Starbird events. That's when the real show bug bit him!
Most of these old Chevy's lack air conditioning. Remember the vents that opened & let the warm wind blow inside the vehicle? Bob usually has to have them wide open so he doesn't have to hear me complain about no a/c! The grandkids love riding in the cars, but I'm not too sure if their Mommy much approves. Grandpa Bob usually waits until we are almost home, on the back stretch behind our Walmart, and then he puts his foot to the floor & gives the grandkids a little thrill. They love it! "Do it again Papaw", they say...& they can't wait to tell Mommy about Papaw going real fast!
Hopefully the heat will wait until we get home from church before it is unbearable tomorrow. Because, I just never know what my Sunday ride will be in! (Do I hear the GTO revving up?)
