So i went and bought myself a full body Chewbacca costume (you know, as you do) and it looks like i shot and skinned a Wookie !!!
Next month i am releasing my new book. The life of a 1959 chevy told by the stories from its backseat.
My inspiration came from my very own 1959 chevy , a ground up restoration of a rather sad and sorry import from the states. ( more about that later) . There was plenty of great moments during that process but for me, one stands out above all.
While tearing out the backseat i noticed a small plastic square, wedged into the faded upholstery. I picked it out and upon closer inspection realised what i had found...
Shiek Rubber Prophylactic - expiry date 1964.
Yes, it was a 50 plus year old unopened condom!
My mind immediately jumped to the night it might have been lost. The obvious reason it was there, the moment of passion ruined by the clumsy owner and possibly the child born from its dissapareance.
It seemed my car, its backseat, had some stories to tell :-)
If you consider that history is merely a collection of stories then you could imagine the tales a 50 year old car could tell.
This book follows the journey of a 1959 Chevrolet from status symbol to scrap metal.
An existence that started with the unremarkable creation in a Michigan factory and continued from family car to antique clunker to finding salvation in the form an accidental rebirth on the other side of the world.
Through this collection of short stories we gain insight into the lives of its owners and the secrets of the passengers who found themselves in the backseat.
