The one that got away

Ok , it’s not the only one that got away. Like many of you I have had lots of cool cars, hot rods , muscle cars , sports cars etc.Some made it to the road and others were sold off as project cars. I loved and need every one of them when they followed me home. The 1949 Merc was really special and I should have finished it. When I was in junior high back in the 60’s a couple of just older guys had a primer 49 and was that ever cool, they even had a car girl named Molly that was always riding with them.I always wanted to be a J.D. with a chopped Merc, finally got one and let it go. I hope it wasn’t that dreaded M word that made it happen. I would rather be a bad boy than a MATURE adult.
