We recently acquired this beauty...well, she may not to beautiful at the moment, but she will be! She needs some love, and a little elbow grease, that's all :) This is her first stage back to her original splendor. I'll be recording and posting her progress! It's too bad they don't make cars like this anymore!

I grew up in the 1970's. I remember our milkman, the Carol Burnett Show, Loretta Lynn, Charlie Pride, The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner show, The Six Million Dollar Man, Captain and Tennille, The Carpeneters, The Knack, The Drive In, Sears Toughskins, The Travel Lodge, and many other American things that definied the late 1960's and 1970's. I miss those days, more than I can express. I miss playing football in the street, as soon as the first twinge of Autumn was felt, I miss riding our bikes to school, and then going back to school on Saturday to ride bikes around the campus, then going to get Icees. I miss the CB radio in my dad's truck..I miss sweating in the summer time, just sitting in that truck, asking every trucker who would listen, "how many pounds I'm pushin' on ya, good buddy?" I miss, living in the Kool Aid house. I miss turning on the raido and hearing the best music ever written. I miss playing outside till my mom had to drag me inside. Back then, our parents couldn't get us to come in..we WANTED to be outside! I miss our Ford Torino. I wish I still had that car...but we now have a '72 Concours Wagon...classic! I miss the good old days..I often wish I could go back and leave the times we're stuck in now. I get made fun of a lot for being stuck in the past, but I like it there...it feels good :) I miss my grand parents, and all the nights my bother and two cousins spent over there, driving them nuts! :) I miss the 70's... I miss America.
