This add tugs at my heart strings.
When I was growing up, there were a couple of elderly spinsters who lived in the house across the street. Their daily driver was a Chevy Celebrity, and then later a Buick Century. The other vehicle in their garage was a beige Suburban more or less exactly like this one, that almost never left the garage.
Even as a kid, I used to dream of the day I could maybe buy that cream puff from them. Yes, even child Shop Teacher was much more interested in Squarebodies with dog dish hubcaps, than I was interested in Ferraris. It’s just how I’m wired.
Look at the bottom of this thing!!!!
If I could afford it, I’d drop a stack of 50-hundreds in their lap. I’m quite sure that would do the trick. Alas, I just have my memories of the one my neighbors had. One day in middle school, I saw it parked on the street with Colorado plates on it (I grew up in Illinois). They had given it to a nephew. I was super bummed.
