Gainesville, Florida citizen "Big Chevy" Chase Henderson told friends that he had always been a Chevy man, while sitting in New Bob's Cafe drinking coffee, Saturday.
"Back in 1955 I bought me a brand spanking new blue and white Chevrolet Bel Air. What a beautiful car. Wish you younger guys could of seed it. Pretty as a speckled pup. I mean I loved that car better than my study galfriend, Thelma Sue and she was a gooden."
"Then thar abouts in June, 1956, I wrecked her. I cried all night. Bruised my balls real bad on the shift. But I tell you what, the very next year I went out and bought myself a 1957 Chevy Bel Air that was pert neart but not plumb as pretty as my Sally. I called that 1955 Bel Air, "Sally"
"I never did name that one because I thought it might bring bad luck but in 1959, I parked her and me and the wife bought us a 1964 Chevy Malibu which ran fer years and the wife kept it and I bought us a 1964 Chevy Corvette. I'm right thankful my courting days were over cause you couldn't do much in that car. But, boys, she could really shit and get it!"
"But then I wrecked that one too. Still got some scrap metal in my left asscheek."
"But I loved ever one of them ole cars. Not like that crap we drive today."
