While in Louisiana, one day I had lunch with my uncle and aunt at Pat’s of Henderson in Lake Charles. The company was great. The crawfish fettuccine was good too! When I’m in Louisiana, there’s never enough time to do all the things I want to do. I guess it’s that way with all of us who have moved away . . family and friends to visit; favorite restaurants to visit, dad who wants an iPod and needs a lesson (or two) on using it.
So, I met my uncle and aunt for lunch and then my uncle took me around town to see all the locations sponsored by the organization for whom he works. It was interesting and I learned a lot about his company but while we were driving around town, he asked me if I remembered that he has my grandpa’s old truck. It’s a 1959 Chevy. I didn’t remember so he took me by his house to see the old truck.
My uncle has had it completely restored.
I hardly remember my grandpa having this truck but I know he would be real happy to know it’s fully restored and belongs to his son. It’s a beauty! Who would ever have thought those old cars and trucks would be so cherished?
I had a 1967 Mustang fastback when I was in high school and college and I would so love to have that car now. What cars have you or your family had in the past that you wish you still had? Think any of the cars we drive these days will be collectibles? Heck, we keep our vehicles so long, they’re almost classics by the time we get rid of them.
