Me and an old acquaintance used to use a 57 Buick Special Riviera to rod around on his dads ten acres. We built a dirt ramp and would fly it into the Flint river. We would haul it out with his dads backhoe, fix her up and do it again. One time when it rolled over while I was in the back seat I got hurt. That took all the fun out of it for me.
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
