After my X-themed rant the other day, you’ve gotta figure I’ll be looking for more excuses to quote X songs.
That’s right, there’s an X song entitled “Delta 88.” Let’s just make this perfectly clear: when it comes to Los Angeles pote/musicians, Exene Cervenka is approximately 9,000 times the poet Jim Morrison ever was (though I hear Morrison had the better stage presence).
Right. So, I was roaming one of the self-service junkyards near my place in Denver and I ran across this 1970 Delta 88. It’s been picked over, but still has plenty of parts left. Check out this vinyl-and-simu-leather interior!
Some of the engine— which I presume is a 2-barrel 455— remains. Not only that, it’s got an 8-track!
