(To the Eagles: Take It Easy)
Well, I’m a runnin’ down the Road
In Ickesburg, Pennsylvania…
And such a fine sight to see
It’s a Model A Ford—OH MY LORD!
A sparklin’ ’31 two-door Ford with
a .030 bored 327 Chebby engine—
wrapped in red, bright as can be!
Norman Maxton loves his 31 Ford. Norman is a partner in a accounting firm in nearby Bloomfield, PA. He polishes
and fusses over every detail. He shows it all around at car shows and has won dozens of awards.
But you know, just sittin’ up behind that fold-up windshield, runnin down the road with that much power underfoot is a trip. Brings me back to my high school years in the famous days of American Graffiti. Days when only cars and girls mattered (sometimes not even cars). Wonderful days when the music and the times were achanging but everyone appreciated a classic car.
Norman took me for a ride around Ickesburg. His neighbors saw us and waved right away— “Here comes Norman and his bright red beauty!” WHAT A FINE SIGHT TO SEE!
