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...
