One of the most remarkable cars I have seen in quite awhile--and in a most unlikely place....

1973 Chevrolet Nova Custom hatchback coupe; medium metallic turquoise, looking almost as if it came from the showroon, right down to the Missouri license plates that expired in 1973; in a maintenance area at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St. Louis, where my family and I had gone to place memorials at the graves of my wife's parents and my older brother; my father-in-law was involved in the Battle of Normandy in 1944, and my brother enlisted in the Navy near the end of the Korean War...

Saw a 1976 Ford Granada 2 door in like new condition parked in front of my work today. An older couple driving. It was white w/blue interior. I asked him about it and we chatted for a bit. It only has 37,000 on it he told me. I told him to contact me if he ever wants to sell it.

1972 Chevelle Malibu 4-door "SS" sedan. I call it that because it was a Cranberry Red four door, but had a black SS-454-style stripe down the center of its hood and trunk lid! In Granite City, IL
