Eagle Envy

When I was in High School at ST. Pius X the thing I wanted more than anything, except for a girl friend, was a Cushman Eagle Motor Scooter.  All the cool guys had one and I did not qualify since my twin brother Tom and I were definitely niched in the nerd category.  (We weren't jocks)

Now my next door neighbor lets me come by occasionally to see his fully restored Cushman Eagle.  He has even offered to let me take it for a spin, which I will do this weekend perhaps.

All of the guys that had these Cushman Eagles back in 62 at St. Pius ended up in wheel chairs and therapy.  I am serious.  Everyone of them had a crash.  Except for one guy who accidentally set his on fire in the parking lot one day when screwing around with a lighter.
