Their combined wealth was $325.00. The first 3000 miles was driven in 58 hours, despite being slowed down by collecting a few speeding tickets, going to a policestation at 3 a.m. to pay a $34.00 fine, getting lost in St. Louis for two hours, stopping for an oil change, and attending mass on Sunday morning. Life was good. Fourporthole Buick Roadmasters. ‘57 T-Birds. GTO’s, Barracudas and Buick Wildcat convertibles. These were the trusty inhabitants of Rick’s automotive world.

Even a ’41Packard Clipper sedan with a hood as long as most people’s driveways. The list of splendid -- and some not so splendid -- cars that Rick has owned goes on and on, andRick has a story for each of them. Tires Optional brings back the days when a good car cost you less than a hundred bucks, drain oil was ten cents a quart, and a gallon ofgas was a mere two bits.

If the car had a radio, you were listening to Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis. America was strong and was respected, and we made cars thatdidn’t sound like a Campbell’s soup can when you tappedthe hood.
