   Bettijo  A week or so ago I posted the story of the custom car which was demolished. I deleted that post because it had some mistakes in it. Now, the rest of the story. The car was named Job One and built by Dave Crook in California. It did take 12 or 13 years to build because Dave was working full time designing for GM at the time. I was wrong about the selling price, sorry, it was $350,000....still a lot of money. To refresh, the owner and his wife were driving the car to a local car show. It was so close they did not bother with a trailer, while turning into the show grounds, they were rear-ended by a 16-year-old girl who was texting. The man was airlifted to Mt. Sinai Hospital; as far as I know both he and his wife are still in some rehab facility. The teenager was unhurt. Car was totally demolished. Thought I would post a picture of Job One. Some of you car enthusiast might know of it. Such a sad story.

   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!

   Safetydude  That's a pretty good price for a three year old car that sold for around $1,800 new.

   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 http://trn.trains.com/webcam from now until arrival in Cheyenne on May 8.
