Shep tells about the time he had a new car and was working at a radio station at night. There was a girl named Gloria working there and after having coffee together for about a week, he asks her out on a date. They go to a classical music concert. Afterward they go to the "Big Boy" drive-in to get something to eat followed by a drive and parking to enjoy the view. After about a half hour Shep takes her home. He pulls into the driveway and suddenly Gloria's mother comes flying out of the house pounding on the car, knocking the window out and hitting him on the head.
[Rich B] Shep says the new car was a Blue Ford and he got after the Army.
