Here I am in 1961 pictured with my Dad's Chevrolet Impala. We were on a family vacation at Niagara Falls.
8 Years later, this became my first car. My friends nicknamed it the "Black Pearl".
I borrowed my Mother's car to get my license as this car had no power steering.
As a junior in high school, I was one of only a few friends that drove. I got lots of experience giving everyone rides.
We liked to take the road on the "West Virginia side" of the Potomac River from Piedmont to Keyser. There were many consecutive sharp turns and the wheels on the car would squeal. One day my friends pranked me and drifted my car from the upper parking lot of the school to the lower and filled the car with paper towels.
The classic car was retired soon after.
