When muscle cars were commonplace on America’s highways, it was during a time of ongoing civil disorder,and a war that so many people opposed. And like the rebellious music of that time, the image of the muscle cars also reflected a similar spirit.
Jason Ruder will learn this today, when he meets the recluse who owns the old muscle car in the shed. Her story whisks Jason’s mind back to a time he knows nothing of—his late father’s.
Her words are so descriptive that Jason can sense the insanity of street racing, and feel the local tension caused by the Vietnam War.
She tells of the calamity of a misguided romance on which an Amish man and a disillusioned war veteran give advice. Her words reveal secrets that answer the question, “Do you really know who you are?”
