Ah yes, the fastback. My ex brother-in-law bought a new one in that same green. I believe he’s still got it, had it stored for many years.
I used to drive 'em as a kid, V8s, three on the floor. Not the fastback, but convertibles -- and that's a good thing. God knows what I'd have done in one of those.
Now you're making me want to break out "Bullitt." You know, the guy who wrote the score for it basically told the director, "What are you talking about, music for the chase scene? The sound of the engines is all you need." I can watch that chase a couple times in a row and just drink in the sound of the engines.
... Looking at that photo and heaving another deep *sigh* dreaming of mountain backroads, gas, fair weather, and days past.
