Blu was her name.
She was born in 1965.
She has lived many life stories.
She has had many adventures.
She has a solid core.
She has traveled many miles.
She is ready for new stories.
She ready for new adventures.
She will travel many more miles with me.
Blu is new to me.
Blu is a 1965 Chevy Stepside C10! She is a little weathered but she has aged with grace. She is the oldest car I have ever owned. She is a beautiful shade of powder blue. She is ready to hit the road or the show.
Her last job had her as a photo prop for many families looking for a cute photo setting. I guess the photographer has moved on to a new backdrop. Her loss is my gain. Now Blu is on to bigger and brighter adventures with me.
My first ride with Blu: I had the windows down. Air flowing through the cab as the engine purred. The oversized steering wheel was a blast to use. It somehow just made the ride complete. No need for the radio as I was listening to all the new sounds of the vehicle.
I rode by the waterfront. Then traveled the back roads. I hit the speed bumps. I idled at the traffic lights. With each traffic stop, I had some conversations with those admiring her beauty and badassery. It made me giggle a bit but inside I was beaming with pride.
Oh the memories I will make with this vintage vehicle. Definitely checked an item off the bucket list with this purchase.
Beep and wave if you see Blu on the road.
