(first posted 11/15/2015) Never mind that our featured car isn’t a “black sedan”. In my mind, it completely fits the vibe of the 1970 #2 Billboard hit, “Vehicle” from Chicago-based band The Ides Of March. This chariot was big, brash, and in-your-face just like this song’s horn section, even if it was “just” a Bel Air.
This chartreuse Chevy gave me a MeTV moment, reminding me of a scene from the opening credits of a 70’s TV show. It looked like the kind of car that a Jack Klugman character would drive. The streets were amazingly clear for the end of December. I wonder where this Bel Air was headed.
