My Favorite Car: '69 Plymouth Sport Satellite, Len Skerker, Madeira Beach

'69 Plymouth Sport Satellite

This is my only photo of my favorite car and its favorite passenger. When the fuel crisis hit in '74, I got the car for a grand: a '69 Plymouth Sport Satellite in metallic green. It had a heated, big rear-glass window — essential in Michigan. I saw only one identical model in many years. Then a Carolina redneck offered a bunch of cash for it. Puzzled, I asked a car guy and he explained that just a minimal number of that model was made to qualify it as a "stock car" and most buyers wanted only the big engine. I had by then given the rusted hulk to a Girl Scout camp.
