Most of us don’t want to think about death. It’s an unsettling and largely unwelcome topic. Humans are emotional creatures by nature, and the majority aren’t well equipped to handle a death of a family member, friend or pet. But for a beloved cat or dog, the ordeal may be easier to bear.

Well intentioned people of the past century imported many handsome plants. Unfortunately, some of them — absent the predators of their homeland — became pests here in America. These “invasives” generally spread quickly by seed and root, and can take over our gardens and adjoining wild places. Many will grow in sun or shade in wet or dry soil — in other words — anywhere!

Go to just about any local car show or cruise in Anywhere, USA, and you’ll see at least one or more 1957 Chevys. They are very popular among ‘50s car collectors and admirers. Most, if not all, will be top-of-the-line Bel Air models with their distinctive bright trim on the rear fender between the two silver bands making up the ‘sweep spear’. Nine out of 10 times, they will be decked out in Matador Red, India Ivory or Onyx Black... and again most of the time they will be a two-door hardtop or convertible. So, right off the bat, the ‘57 Bel Air I’m reviewing today is unique because it is none of the above.

I wanted to get ducked. No this is not some weird autocorrect fail (which happens a lot to me). My tester this week comes with a fun, frivolous tradition amongst the die-hard Jeep community. If you drive a Wrangler, other Jeepers will place a rubber duck somewhere on your Jeep. Yes it’s silly. No I don’t know the origin, but since I was driving the 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4Xe I wanted the duck.

Anyone who knows me closely knows that I have been fascinated with big rigs, or 18-wheelers, ever since I was a young boy. When I was fresh out of elementary school, I wrote to manufactures like GMC, Kenworth, Peterbilt, Mack and others, requesting spec sheets with dimensions so that I could make drawings of the tractors.
