Old Memories From Faded Photographs

Mike Kamphause and my future wire, Shizuko sitting on the hood of my '53 Chevy. Mike's ever present radio is sitting on the top of the car and a beer in his hand. That car was built like a tank and the fenders were extremely strong (as were all the cars of that era). There was no worry about bending anything. This picture was taken at Moon Beach. Mike was a great guy who was very popular and always up-beat. We drank a lot of beer together and had a lot of laughs.

I was as proud of that car than of any I've had since. The beauty of being young like we were is that is that you don't miss what you never had. Besides, wealthy is relative term.
