    Back then I didn't even know where Woodward Ave. was. I'm from the other side of the state and didn't drive in the Detroit area for at least 5 more years. Closest I got was Pontiac for the concerts.

    At the Silver Dome in Auburn Hills. Used to ride my dirt bike there before they ruined it with that stadium. Them was the days. Woodward was a nightly jaunt. Had lots of trouble and got into all sorts of fun.

    I was supposed to get, or share with my father his 71 duster.
    unfortunately, he was in a horrific accident on the LI expressway, he hit a wall after getting cut off.
    it was one of the first times the NY fire dept used the jaws of life machine to cut the roof off the car to get him out.
    he was laid up in the hospital for over 4 months.

    51 Chrysler, push button fluid drive transmission with running boards for $60.00 'as is'.

    The radio had automatic tuning which I thought was pretty impressive in 66...

    ...back them weighing 150lbs the inside was as roomy as a camper.

    That brings back memories.....BIG friggin table, small balls and pockets......There was alot of green on some of my shots.

    He controlled the cue ball great, which a great player does.

    When I was stationed in Ilionois going to aircraft maintenance school for 36 weeks...where I bought that corvette in post 1.....I remember.......bars with farmers in bib overalls, sawdust on the bar floor, and those suckers could play snooker.......I remember, going 140 on a straight road at midnight with a real bright moon in the sky and my front end just about lifting off the ground.....and passing cornfield after cornfield.....Man there is alot of corn in Illinois.....I remeber going to soldier field to watch a football game......I remember going to chicago and staying at the Yammka hotel for 2 bucks a nite ( also spelled YMCA).....I remember going to the Drake hotel............I'm sure there was alot I forgot.......I miss those days very much.

    My first car was a black '69 Chevelle SS with a white top & white bucket seats, a 350 cu in motor, M-22 transmission, 12 bolt posi rear.
    It was a very nice $1200 cruiser for an 18 year old, back then. LOL...

    63 Chevy Nova 3 speed on the column.
    Clutch petal like a tank. Uggh!
    It started so high, my knee was in my chin,
    then descended into...god knows where.
    Just went on forever.
    Used ever ounce of strength to keep it down.
    Got to hate driving in traffic pretty quick.
    Think I drove it off a cliff.

    Such memories are so cool the pool hall in Omaha where I worked they use to play a game for money on a snooker table called golf Id watch those older guys make a shot and then leave the cue ball in a place to where the next player would have to pull a shot out of his ass neat stuff didnt realize defense was a big part of that game
