the Navy 55 years ago today at Treasure Island. Bought a 54 Chevy and drove that home to Pennsylvania. It burned 3 qts. of oil per tank of gas. made it to Bakersfield Calif. and had two lifters and push rods replaced. That got it running on 6 cyl. Had a thermostat put in in Memphis to get heat. Replaced the generator in Roanoke Va. and made it to Bristol Pa the next day. What a ride. I needed that after a year and half on Midway Island.

You're welcome for the tax dollars that bought your car. And thanks for trashing the environment with that gas-guzzling hunk of junk.

smart dude, I worked for those tax dollars, therefore had the right to spend them. That car got me back and forth to work for about 4 months and traded it in on my favorite car, 64 Malibu SS 283 4 speed. Had lots of great memories in that car.
