the one that got away.

It’s not about a girl….

It’s about a ‘68 Chevy Impala.

I saw this car at a car show in Maine this summer.

This is my dream car….not because of value, but because of nostalgia.

Growing up, we had a ‘68 Chevy Caprice, and it was EXACTLY like this car. I remember a lot of car rides and trips in that car, listening to music (on 8-track) that would end up being such an incredible part of my life.

The car reminds me of my mom and dad, who I miss every day.

The owner was awesome – he let me sit in the car for about 30 minutes, while I put my headphones on and listened to some of the music from my childhood….it was fantastic to go back.

The owner called me last week to see if I’d be interested in buying it, for what was a very reasonable price.

If I had a garage, this car would be mine….it does not deserve to sit out in the elements.

I hope whoever buys this gives it the TLC it deserves.
