Now that I’m ‘patiently’ waiting for the initial story editor analysis, I thought I’d share the type car that the characters where in as they drove from Carmel-by-the-Sea down to Los Angeles, roamed about old LA, and then across Route 66 toward Kentucky. This particular car was originally owned by Charlie Chaplin. I thought it was a car that my grandparent’s could have actually seen as they studied at the Bible Institute of Los Angeles, BIOLA, from 1926 to 1930. So, I thought the car was a perfect metaphor for then and now. I changed the color in the novel, but this car inspired me.
In truth my grandparent’s really drove a Model A Ford. As you can see, it was not quite as comfortable to ride, as a Pierce Arrow. And remember, they didn’t just drive around town, they drove across the country along the mythical Mother Road before it was called, the Mother Road.
My grandparent’s circa 1930, Model A Ford.
