About the blog Cars Places I've been

I had a long way to go and a short time to get there

I apologize for pretty much dropping off the face of the Earth the last couple of weeks. (Especially after promising to update more now that I had a good backlog of Nostalgia Tuesday photos to post.) My bad. Life’s just been way too busy recently.

Herman pulling his new friend, Ginger

Here’s one thing I’ll tell you about, because I have pictures to help my brain-dead self tell the story. My friend Carol bought this 1973 Challenger a couple weeks ago from a farmer’s field up in Missouri. The car, which she named Ginger, wasn’t exactly in driveable condition (you may have noticed the duct tape “racing stripes” holding the hood down) so I finally gave Herman a good workout towing her back to Texas.

Everywhere we stopped (for gas, to pee, to reapply the duct tape) people would come out of the woodwork to gawk at the Challenger and ask questions. I snapped this picture just before the trucker from that red rig in the background jumped out and told us all about every project car he had in his garage back home.

Twas a fun trip.
