In celebration, I give you this pic of a 1965 Buick Electra 225. This is from a sales brochure, but it also happens to be exactly the same color and model as my Dad's. It was the only new car my dad ever bought, and to this day, is is still the smoothest riding American. or really any other, car that I have ever been in. That includes similar vintage Caddys. It was like riding on a 454cubic inch powered cloud.
I miss you dad. Thanks for all the surprises along the way.
