My 62 Bel Air that I became the second owner of when I was 18 (15 years ago) didn't come with seat belts either, so I think just owning one doesn't make you old

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

HAHAHAHA! I remember that too. In our station wagon we put the back seat down and laid in the back. We were projectiles. Jim

Standing on the front bench seat, my parents' arms were the safety restraints...

of course, the lightning quick backhand served a different purpose when I got older.

to their farm..( back then lucky to see 3 or 4 cars in a day on that road)
