You guys are making me miss my Dad all the more. 35 years in the Arlington Texas GM plant. His slightly moded 65 yellow Impala(black top), moms 1968 Ice Blue Le Mans, Black 1976 Grand Prix SJ, Marrone 1984 Bonneville SSE. And the man drove like a bat out of hell in every car he ever had.(Haven't even mentioned the Buicks and Cadillacs that he owned). Really felt like I'd arrived as a man when I came home and was excited about trying to get my hands on a 1974 Chevelle with a 454 under the hood,(it also happend to be a convertable). Dad didn't say much but he smiled and you could tell his thoughts went back aways. We talked for hours about this.
The blood of gear heads flows through our viens. This is why we do what we do. I'll tell you one other thing: Cherish your Dads. The guy who'* lap you sat on the first time you got behind the wheel of a car. The guy who got in your behind the first time you got a ticket; and later called up his boys and joked about it. The guy who made sure you know how to drink and Drive and not get caught. Cherish your Dads.
