I never owned anything like those beauties. My one long term relationship with a Dodge was a 1970 pickup. A rusty old Dodge D series, it started every day and ran. With very little maintenance, I drove it to work for 6 years, pulled a trailer full of Scout camping gear out on weekend trips every month, and gathered firewood to heat my home every fall. It looked a lot like this one, but wasn’t in as good a condition. It’s one interesting feature was that the guy who owned it before me had put a 360 in it. A sleeper, that’s what we used to call it.

I miss it.

It’s surprising how much memory is built around things unnoticed at the time.
