3: Cars, Collected... Some people collect coins, stamps, or other things. I collect little pewter animals, and for more than fifty years my good husband, CB, has collected old cars. Most people keep their collections, but he sells his. Since he was a teenager, he could take a pile of parts and build a car. He can listen to passing cars and tell you whatever its problem is, whether it's spark plugs, the carburetor, or even an under inflated tire. He loves to get behind the wheel of a car and take long trips. While I'm checking out the scenery, he is looking in people's garages and behind barns for old cars or trucks that might need his attention. He comes dragging in an old worn out car or truck and by the time he is finished with it, it's like brand new. He says he's "bringing them back to life". More often than not, he sells them for little more than his cost. His favorites are Broncos and Mustangs, but many a Chevy, Dodge, or other make of car or truck has been renewed in his shop. He isn't interested in newer vehicles. When we bought our last new car, he told me he couldn't work on it, and that I would have to take it to the dealer for service. This was said with a sigh of regret, as the newer computerized engines have left my personal mechanic behind. But in the pages that follow, you'll see that for many years my husband never met a car he didn't like. - Billie Martin Buck, 2010
