Wheels in Motion

The summer of ’62 is coming to a close. Billy Peterson has been working hard to save enough money to buy his dream car, but with the End-of-Summer Blowout quickly approaching, and no hopes of finding a car, the last hurrah seems to be fizzling out.

Things are looking up, though, as the Wheels of Fate are set in motion.

I was born in the summer of '62...and when I turned 16 I got my first car....not a dream car, no sir! My grandpa's puke green 1962 Chevy Impala, nicknamed "Bed Springs".

Monica Manning said...

Wine & Words: Hmmm, let me guess. It wasn't nicknamed Bed Springs for the reason I'm thinking.

Dan Felstead said...

Monica...great start and as Glnroz...I am wanting more!

By the way the "bedsprings" comment was funny!


Monica Manning said...

glnroz: (snicker) Isn't that the point? And btw, I wanted to comment on your comment re Packing Up. You said you feared seeing your name in the chant. You should. My first stupid was also a Glenn-with-2-enns.

I won't hold it against you. ;O)

Geez, now I'm worried that you're all going to be disappointed. It's just a teen romance inspired by some pictures taken by Dan Felstead. Old cars and teen romance just seem to go hand in hand.
