I remember one day getting the filling station attendant to put in 25 cents of gas in my 55 chevy. Back then a lot of filling stations or service stations gave free maps away. He ask me if I wanted one.

Talking '65 in '69

I graduated HS in 1966. In 1969 after graduating FairburyJuCo in Nebraska, I bought a 1965 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe. $650. A two door, 3 speed, 283 cu engine with a racing cam, Chrome wheel, Mickey Thompson standard size front tires and J-78x14 rear tires just to jack it up a little. Candy Apple Burgandy with metal flake exterior and a black and burgandy cloth interior with red underdash lighting. It had that now famous 8 Track tape player and booming Pioneer sound system. Holly 4 bbl carb and a high speed rear end, duel cherry bomb exaust system. I couldn't lay down rubber because of the rear end (It was a 5--something RE can't remember which, but, in Nebraska and Missouri I buried the speedometer and kept accelerating several times a week for most of the early summer. A friend of mine had his brother die in a car crash at an estimated 80 MPH accident when he rolled his car after hitting two large sized dogs on the highway. His 327 cu '67 Chevelle disintegrated when he hit the dogs and the rest of the car rolled. That's when I grew a whole lot of functioning grey matter. The proof is I'm still lucky enough to be here. I had that car until 1972, 1 year after I got married. Most of you know why I let it go. Oh yeah. Nice memories.
