The Gossards cruised Bob’s Big Boy in Burbank, Calif. — just like they did in the 1960s. They think part of the fun of driving a hot rod is that it helps to relive their youth, when life was much simpler. Today — unlike in the days of their youth — the couple have enough money to have a hot rod that is painted and upholstered — things considered a luxury in bygone days. Also, today’s hot rod has an engine and drive-train that is safer, stops better and gets them from one place to another without breaking down. So, the Gossards can enjoy reliving their youth with the benefit of today’s advancements.
