Very similar story, while travelling through Central Australia returning home from the National Model A Meet we had stopped at a trailer park where we had spent two nights. I was taking the opportunity to service the car when I was approached by an older gentleman who showed much interest in the car, he asked all the usual questions and was a very interesting man to talk to. As I had time to spare i asked him if he would like to go for a drive. He readily accepted my offer.
He chatted as we drove down the road but suddenly I detected a change in his voice as he stopped talking. I looked across at him and he had tears streaming down his face. Somewhat embarressed he explained. I had just taken him back to when he was a 13 year old child sitting beside his dad in their Model A on the way to school.
Never under estimate the memories that our cars evoke.
