Pink Cadillac

Look, check out this fantastic pink Cadillac I saw on the road,” I say to hubbie.

We’re not exactly Cuba here, (although in Syria you see lots of these oldies still driving), and so an original old American car (definitely now that they are all going bankrupt) is something of a sight.

Hubbie looks across the room to my computer screen, and says without batting an eye-lid; “It’s a Ford Galaxie, not a Cadillac.

Now how the hell would he know that? He’s like Marisa Tomei inMy Cousin Vinny’ (Scroll down to the ‘fun stuff’). I'm impressed.

He is correct. In the nearly seventies, there were lots of these Galaxies on Beirut's roads.

FYI, Ford imports were banned in the Arab countries between 1967 and 1989 as Ford was on Black List like Coca Cola. Ford a car guy, it is obviously an early 60's Ford Galaxy recognizable for its round tail lights. To be more specific, it is a 1962 model :)

It's nice that your husband commented on the car instead of the billboard, maybe he read the **warning** "keep your eyes on the road", good advice to drivers...and husbands
