Was it in his '49, '50, '51, '52, '53, '54, '55, '56, ‘57, ‘58’, 59’ Cadillac?


#3

In the Toronto of my youth we had “Johnny Cash” ATMs…

Not even joking.


#4

Perhaps he was disappointed she wasn’t on drugs while speeding.


#5

Disappointed she was speeding, of that she got caught?


#6

Disappointed she didn’t hit any of those damn yellow buzzards


#7

actually, that is was only 102 mph. Johnny thought he’d bought her a better car than that.

… and does this mean the original “Man in Black” wore black around the house, too?


#8

102 mph in his car."

That’s my kinda gal.

He reduced the population of California condors in Los Padres National Forest from 53 to 4 when his camper caught fire. Sorry, can’t edit the post for some reason, just felt like clarifying.

The Man in Black looked to be in a very dark mood…

Probably frustrated because he lacked standing to lecture his girl. No saint in his younger days…which, of course, was a major facet of his greatness.


#11

I’m kind of disturbed at people thinking that the man couldn’t have been genuinely (if hypocritically) concerned about the danger that his daughter had put herself in. Being a daredevil at a younger age doesn’t preclude having parental instincts at a later date.


#12

At least it wasn’t a Hot Rod Lincoln…


#13

For a long time afterward the only way she could get around was by taking a Johnny Cab.


#14

[Johnny Cash was] talking but she don’t hear a thing
She was still uptown on her downhill swing
Boulevard’s empty… so what did it matter she was doing 102?


#15

i would NOT want to have johnny cash that angry with me, that’s for sure.


#16

You may be angry… but you’ll never be Johnny Cash eating cake in a bush angry.
