Dodge Challenger Reborn
Dodge Challenger Reborn


We had two of these. His the red R/T sort of like in the video (but with hood scoops and gills and black stripes and a pistol grip shifter and an engine that would just about blow the doors off anything else on the street if you could keep it together) mine hemi orange with a black vinyl roof and auto tranny. Actually exactly like the one they used for comparison in the video.
OMG everything old really is new again.
Now do I wanna drive a Mommycar or a Musclecar? Geeze and we've been shopping small SUVs.
Maybe you really can go home again....

I learned a new word today "taphophile" from [livejournal.com profile] ckr .
I don't take rubbings or pictures,I am not that dedicated. I just like to experience the peace and history I get when I go out to look at the older foot and headstones.I feel sometimes we spend so much time trying to record an event or pin down a feeling we can totally miss the experience.
I have to say my most cherished memories are so much better than the photos or videos I have of them.
Now I am not saying I don't take pictures, just that I'd rather not miss out on the feelings and impressions I have at those moments in time, photos just don't do justice most of the time.
As we were traveling across country a few years ago we came to a very old cemetery and I made them all picnic there with me there ( my version of tailgate). Then we just wandered through for a little while.It was amazing, out in the middle of back of beyond doesn't even come close to describing it, no gate or fence, not even a sign.
I asked them all to be quiet for just a moment and just see it, feel the history of the people gone on before.They were all quiet and stood there breathing in the wonderful clean country air and the historical significance, all in all a wonderful family teaching moment.
Then my oldest son then about 13 piped up and said "That's great Mom where's the Frisbee!"

Okay maybe I am just weird after all.
