Note : full screen window gives you the best view of the comments !

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they don't get.... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Link :
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.

Nice Impala. You had one of those. Very cool. Do you wish you still had that car. I sold my 65 GTO after High School Graduation and regreted ever since.

Happy New Year Jean.

Hi LP (still Timbo ?).
It was indeed a great car. Remember when I graduated I drove the car while going around by our teachers to thank them.
Sadly in 65 or so, just before going on holiday (everything was packed) a drunk fellow found it necessary to hit several cars in our street.
There was almost no visable damage to our car but the next day the garage had to dissapoint us. The automatic engine/gear inside was too costly to repair. So total-loss.

And yes I often look at this car when I saw it. Always wished to buy it again.
On the other hand, it's too big to park in the city, it's costly in gasoline.
So I'm happy with my today's Ford and will stick to this. But that Chevy will always be in my heart !
I had an Impala as a "corgy toys" when I was a kid. Later I never made it to a street cruiser - germany never gave you sufficient space nor in streets neither in parking lots, not to mention the prices of combustibles.

so, I found my pride and joy in old small english sportscars . . .

but listening to this kind of music always reawakes images of fleetwoods, impalas, bel-airs . . .
There were the Dinky Toys, the Corgi Toys and the Matchbox series.

The Dinky Toys turned out to be the most expensive ones later on. They were really 'strong' made.

But I too collected (some) Corgi Toys. They had wheel suspension... so I liked them better.

For my first child, a boy, I collected the complete Matchbox serie. Every week from my pocket money I did buy one. Instead of being carefull he played with them outside in the sandbox. Let them there when it rained.... and finally gave them all away.... Children...
