BLACK BEAUTY - MY MOM'S 68 CHEVY CAPRICE
This car was a special order in 1968. It took 3.5 months to arrive. I got to pick everything, including the buckets, 396 and SS package, but not the color. Mom picked green. I would have picked blue. Mom...sure hope you can see the progress!
Mom's first car was a 59 Chevy hot rod owned by the son of the Tommy Ayre's Chevy Dealership in Laguna Beach, California. The car was lowered in front and had massive pipes. Mom earned the nickname in town as the 'hot rod lady'. Living up to her nickname, her next car was a baby blue 1962 Impala SS.! P.S. Mom learned to drive at the age of 47 after Dad died.
Her family thought her very radical driving a fast car...they thought she was radical in all respects as she was so independent!...but they still came to visit.

My son Chris spent the summer with her up at Julian...
