Soapweed said:Nice Montana pictures. Your "fun buggy" reminds me of the old 1966 Volkswagen pickup that I drove to college in the spring of 1971. During the fall semester, I had a 1966 Chevrolet Impala convertible, and consequently drove it with a little pride. The engine went bad on it, so rather than pay more money to fix the engine, I traded it back to the dealer straight across for the Volkswagen pickup. Any "status" that may have accompanied driving the Impala, went right out the window when I started driving the VW. Cowboys and VWs just weren't the norm. VW busses were hippy wagons, and a VW pickup was probably a notch below the busses.
One evening it was raining pretty hard. Six or seven of us piled into the cab of that pickup to go downtown to watch a movie. I hit the brakes at a stop sign, and with all that weight ahead of the front tires, the back wheels of the pickup momentarily came up off the ground.
Thanks for the murky memories. :wink:
