  5. About twenty-five years ago, my dad shows up driving a brand new Ford Explorer. Dad is very proud and wants to show it off to me. It's a very nice car with leather seats and matching set of luggage. Then I notice on the front door is a painted script "Eddie Bauer" I ask Dad, "Who the hell is "Eddie Bauer" ? And why is his name on your car? You should take it back and have it changed to "Joe Miller" That was the first time I had ever heard of Eddie Bauer... I was not suitably impressed
  6. That's how I ended up with the Roadmaster. It was Dad's car. After he whittled his collection down, the Roadmaster is what was left. Dad's collection included 1935 Ford 1936 Buick 1940 Cadillac 1952 Chevrolet 1955 Buick 1956 Ford F1 1961 Lincoln 1964 Lincoln 1966 Lincoln 1966 Lincoln convertible 1968 Lincoln
