The jet-setters at the newly constructed Dulles Airport (designed by Eero Saarinen and photographed by Balthazar Korab) really knew how to arrive in style.I’ll bet right now you’re dreaming about going out to the garage and jumping in your beautiful shiny red and white fully restored ’58 Plymouth Savoy and tooling around town getting looks from everybody you pass. They don’t make ’em like that anymore. Cool beans.

Trouble is, that’s just a dream. Your real Savoy has been sitting in your back shed for the last 14 going on 15 years. The tires are flat and most of the motor is piled under the workbench. The paint job is two tone – pink bondo and primer grey. You’re not sure where you left the hood. Possibly your kids are using it for a fort back in the woods.

Keep your chin up, Skippy. You are not alone. Someday you’ll find the time and money to finish fixing it up and what a day that will be. Keep that dream alive!
