It’s Priceless

FDD8BF0D-F7E0-4B7E-BCF8-57348309E8CE “Hey Sally, do you wanna take a ride in this cherry, 1977 Chevy Caprice Classic I just bought?” Matt yelled to his girlfriend as he pulled the car into her driveway.

“Have you gone completely daffy?” Sally asked. “Why in the world would you go out and buy a 43-year-old junker car?”

A disappointed expression darkened Matt’s face. “Are you kidding me?” he said. “This is a friggin’ Chevrolet Caprice Classic. Look at her, she’s in great shape. This is not just your average car, you know, Sally. The Caprice Classic was the most popular American car in the sixties through the mid seventies.”

Sally rolled her eyes and shook her head. “So how much did you pay for that old piece of shit?” she asked Matt.

“There you go again, Sally, off on some irrelevant tangent,” Matt said. “This car is a  true classic. It’s priceless.”

    My son owned that car. He absolutely adored it. It was actually big enough for him to sit up and see out the window!. It eventually started to cost too much to maintain, but i think — 15 years later — he still misses it.

      It really was a very popular car in its day.

    Excellent take on the prompts! We own (hubby and me) a 1964 Ford Galaxie! It’s big, loud and gorgeous.

    Great story about the “old” Chevrolet. As a person who wrenched for a couple of decades, I’ve concluded that of the many positive changed that have occurred during the past the past 43 years, tires made the greatest change.
