Just put this on and it will start the show itself turn up your speakers

Someone did an awesome job putting this together and with sound to boot. At the very end of the video you'll hear the song 'Thunder Road' sung by the star of the movie for which it was the theme! Not uncommon except this is the one and only song ever recorded, for publication, sung by Robert Mitchum! Cars we drove in the 50's and 60's

Ya know sumthin', guys ? We younger old timers are 'living history'. We are also living in historic times. Some of us are getting tired and slowin' down somewhat, now relating to the elders of OUR youth. One thing WE can take with us, is that WE LIVED, and did things many men just dream about or see in the movies.

Spot on DD... spot on.

Ken- don't let those demons have one word. Sumbitches circle you when you are alone & not feeling well. They wait for an opening & pounce. Addicts die all the time because of this. They always tell you that you are "different"... that you cannot be understood. Cast them back to hell where they came from. Stick around; stay with us & keep moving. You have a purpose- or you would have OD'd or be dead from something else. Pray pray pray....

Its not over. So we don't run from the cops anymore.... we don't pack or noses with powder, drink like fish, & chase women while trying to hold down some CRAP job... racing from stop lights. You could not pay me to do it over... the grace of God kept us all here. Now there are I phones & "smart cars".... be glad we know better. "Cruise Night" is the closest overrated example of what it was like.

They make movies about people like us now.... dudes like Zip & others were there. We all caught a glimpse of it as it totally left in the 80's.... but we are still here.
