Jim and I started dating in April of 2007. It was a
while before he got up the nerve to suggest that I
accompany him to a cruise-in at Mama Possums.
Jim had a 67 Dodge Coronet R/T that he had restored but he thought I wouldn't be interested in old cars and was reluctant to bring it up.
To his surprise, he found out that I do like old cars. He was thrilled to find someone who was happy to share the interest and even expand on it (I'm an
eager learner). However, it wasn't until our second cruise-in that I brought out the skeleton in my closet.
He would say it all got started when we went to that
cruise-in and I said “My daddy has an old Ford Falcon,” and saw "Sucker" written on his face.
But that's his story. It really started with an older love affair.
