This is me. And this is the first car I ever remember my family owning or ever remember being driven around in. It's a Chevy Impala and I'm guessing it's from the early 1960's. Inside on the steering wheel there was a small impala emblazoned in the center. I remember taking my index finger and slowly tracing its outline over and over again. This was long before I could read or write. If I remember correctly, it looked something like this:
At the time, I had no idea what an impala was but some how I just knew I liked it. It was safe and it was an important part of the family.
