The Road

   Surfhut  My first car was a '64 Chevy Impala. It had been the family car, then my brother's 1st car, then my 1st car. It had seen better days by the time I got my driver's license. Didn't care! Sure had a lot of fun driving Nellie. What was your 1st car? Did you give it a name?

   Ole buzzard  My first car was a '55 Ford Crown Victoria. It was two-tone black and white. I converted it from an automatic to a three speed manual on the floor. I drove it until all the salt from Illinois winter roads ate away the front suspension.

   Bettijo  It was about 1953. I was living at home, working, and going to college. I was not allowed to drive the family car and desperately wanted a car of my own. My father was totally against financing a car and would not let me buy one until I could pay cash for it. I finally saved $500 and my father and I went shopping for a used car. I wanted a convertible and he wanted something safe for me to drive. Finally we found a 1950 Chevy convertible we could agree on. The owner would not let it go for less than $550 and I had only $500. It was a standoff until my father came up with the $50. I never forgot my father's objection to financing cars and to this day I have never financed a car!

   Wrightwinger  One of my cousins, long ago...

Jack Fry of Wayne entered a Hudson Hornet in the 1952 Southern 500 NASCAR race in Darlington, SC. Gene Comstock of Chesapeake, Ohio was the driver. Comstock had raced in the 1950 race as well. In 1952, he finished 21st in Jack Fry's car. Comstock finished 3rd in the 1955 race. In all, Comstock made 29 starts and had six top tens in his career.

   Ole buzzard  Then Testarossa, it is. I could have gotten a picture with a couple bikini clad beauties, but I thought you wouldn't want to distract from the car.

   Ole buzzard  I don't know where else to put this. I've been following the move of the Union Pacific Big Boy steam locomotive from the Rail Giants Museum in Pomona CA to the UP Steam and Heritage shops in Cheyenne WY. UP is going to completely rebuild the locomotive and return it to service in 3 to 5 years. Right now, Trains magazine is streaming the move live at from now until arrival in Cheyenne on May 8.
