Hey John, I think I have been in that back seat. It involved a semi-cute girl on a warm summer night at an undisclosed drive-inn.
How's that for "...romance of the road"?

YES....that would qualify, yet I was thinking more on the lines of the sense of exhileration that comes with an open road map and few days on your hands. I believe it to be a rite of passage for every young American buck to experience endless asphalt mystically unscroll beneath their beloved iron horse.

Dunno John. That "Confidential" part has some undertones....that don't readily translate to 'open road driving'. I with Tom on this one, summer of '67. Toni, of the blond hair, blue eyes, 16 years old......

I beg to differ.
There's a difference between "romance of the road" & "in heat in a field/parking lot". ( :

G: I hope you were under 18 in 1967.

It doesn't matter now. The statute of limitations has run out in all 50 states.
In my state, they can still get you if you're under 18, & there's this "3 year age gap" thing when they're 17. Fortunately for me, even when I was 16, teen-aged girls didn't appeal to me all that much. Some of them were lookers, but they were the silliest acting creatures on the face of the earth. As long as I've been old enough to notice, I've always liked full grown women.
The problem is that as soon as I reached the age of the women I'd always been attracted to, they started chasing little punk boys.

T: I understand your pain. I'm at the point in my life when a pretty young woman smiles at me, I don't know if she is flirting or just being kind.
