He came upon a 1966 Plymouth Barracuda moldering in a field and it led him to reflect on how men carry their memories: through objects. Which is probably why old men say that their old dead car is not for sale. Read Curbside Classic: 1966 Plymouth Barracuda – Dad’s Boots

    I know of a woman a few blocks away who has a car covered in her driveway that has a license plate saying 61 Caddy. Apparently her late husband has three and when he passed away she sold two and kept the one. I just past it today uncovered and saw a pristine 61 four door hardtop Cadillac. She is in her 80’s and through neighbor scuttlebutt I know she is not selling it despite numerous offers.

    The fellow around the corner has a 65 Mustang 289 3spd and I talked with him. He has had it since 1973 and it sits on the street with windows half open and tires with 15 lbs.of air. He just put a cover on after I saw two notes on the car windshield. No doubt offers to buy which I know irritate him. So now he has covered it but you can see the lower half. He isn’t selling either and it does have current tags.

      I’ve seen this be much more a man thing than a woman thing – but as your example shows, women can play this game too.
