Illustration Friday, Remembrance

I remember my first car, a slightly used 1965 Chevy Bel Air. My mother bought it for me for $600.

Great drawing! This reminds me of a 1965 Pontiac Laurentian 2DRHT(Canadian version of a Strato Chief??) I used to own back in the 70's; a true land-yacht. Thanks for the memory Robert.

Robert, just for your info, according to Wikipedia, the Pontiac Laurentian was a rebadged Catalina - ya learn something new everyday. Cheers.
