24 Hours on Blacktop

 I flew to West Virginia to pick up a car I bought off ebay from photos only.
 Not being a car guy, I did my best to look it over....Seemed fine. Off I went.
 It had a fresh motor, so I tried to stay off the interstates. At times, It was a must.


 After getting a two lane route down, I was getting hungry and saw a drag race going on. So bbq, and smoke was the ticket. Best 15 dollar lunch I ever had.
 No cup holders.


 So many small race shops in Kentucky.

 It was 11pm, I had no sleep in 24hours. Rain and lighting were on the way. No wipers, tail light out, and these stupid headlight chrome brow things made seeing impossible. So I slept.
The seats are much smaller then my F150.


 Mississippi.
My kids are distracting me, so my writing skills are hampered.
Great car, great cross country drive. So happy to have this in my driveway.

Big cars rule! When I was a kid I remember a Black 427 67 SS Impala raising hell in Melrose, man that bitch hauled balls. Hope this link works, it's a Chevy ad from 67

My grandma had a '67 Impala fastback. 'course, it was just a tan-colored, 283 powerglide, but still, a bitchin' style. Wish I'd ended up with it, it'd be satan black with some kind of built V8 by now.
