Buck and I fished a couple of miles of Sand Crick together that day, 
reminiscing every step of the way over our adventures as kids along the same 
crick. We came upon a half-submerged car, a 1937 Packard that someone had 
dumped into the crick under the pretext of preventing bank erosion but actually 
to be rid of a 1937 packard. Buck drifted his line in through the gaping hole 
of the front windshield and hooked a fine Eastern brook out of the back seat. 
"First time I ever caught anything in the back seat of a 1937 Packard", he 
said. "I've never been that lucky," I said enviously, "but I came pretty close 
once in a 48 Hudson."
