Slip Sliding Away details the days the author's car Shadowfast served as a mud-wrestler and surfer rod. Shadow got his first blacked out treatment then. Plus raced a GTO, and helped rescue damsels in distress.

Artistic rendition of an original black 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1

Above is an admittedly rough artistic recreation of an actual photo taken of Shadow not long before the time of the events related here, sitting in a lot off the parkway described in several stories on-site (even the real photo was of poor quality like this, due to being snapped on one of those cheap 'instamatic' cameras of the era).

At the time I took the photo, Shadow possessed fresh new paint and bodywork, plus a factory chin spoiler I think I'd bought used. I'd also run a white pin stripe over some side body lines, ending in the rear fender scoops (the pin-stripe was perhaps the main feature distinguishing my 1969 Mustang from that of Sue Anne's football player boyfriend of the time).

I believe the actual photo I'm aping here ended up in the possession of the real-life "Lindsay" who helped inspire this account.
