He asks, "Yours? Can you take us back to the hotel in it?"

Little do they know as we make the twenty minute ride to the hotel, I'm sharing a secret with Kim. The '57 Chevy has been running a little hot lately. It's only spring but it is Las Vegas. I'm more focused on the rising thermostat than the road. As we get closer to the hotel the thermostat is reaching the boiling point. Whoa! Then Davy says "Hey can we stop at the store?"  "Sure." They go in and I quickly raise the hood with steam pouring out of it. Very carefully open the radiator and then I dash into the store. I grab some coolant and off to fill the radiator.
