Car Chase -- Community Blog

A friend from Texas just called to say that he just acquired the car he always dreamed of when he was a kid in Illinois, over fifty years ago. It was a Ford with a custom German body that sat in a persnickety neighbor's garage from the time of his earliest memory until he went away to college. At that point, he lost track of it until he saw it buried in a Utah estate auction listing. Yes, the miracle of the internet struck again and he was able to finally acquire the car of his childhood dreams.

 Not all of us are this lucky, but we all had a car we wanted as tikes. Mine was a red Duesenberg. What was yours?
