    An Army Jeep on Okinawa in 1967.

    Came home and purchased a 1965 Ford Fairlane from Queen City Chevrolet, sold to me for $2,100 by Elmer Bertram. It had a 289 engine which over-heated with great regularity, and the paint completely vanished from the roof.

    Not counting the pickup truck and other vehicles that I drove while on my friend's farm, it was a 1965 Ford Galaxy 500, 352 V8. I was 15 years old and had to feed the pony morning and evening. It was in a stall at a neighboring farm and had about 9 acres to roam. So I drove up there each morning and evening. Squealed the tires every chance I got. There wasn't much chance of getting caught by the sheriff out in the boonies. And my parents knew I was taking "the beater" for that purpose.

    Some kid in the school apparently drove an 80-something Omni, and hadn't moved it from the parking lot...so they coaches had about 8 of us offensive linemen pick it up and move it over a couple of parking aisles so it was out of the way.
