My first car was a 1966 tan Chevy Impala that I bought for $600 and drove it from Great Lakes, IL to the Bronx to visit the sister of a buddy in Navy boot camp after I graduated. Got in a bit of trouble with that car. It did a 360 on an icy bridge (I-43 over Silver Spring Blvd. in Glendale, WI) but I’m a really good driver now! It’s amazing how cheap gas was in those days, something like $.25 a gallon. And our big V-8 engines guzzled it right up!
