Update. Mom and dad are now resting together. Still pass that spot on occasion, still have the thrill!!
This bridge was the first time I reached the speed above 100 MPH. I was in a 1970 Plymouth GTX with a 426 Hemi and we buried the speedometer at > 140 MPH. Too cool. Every time I go to visit my parents I think about that time, even though the old bridge has been replaced. It had quite a few bumps and high spots is 1971. What a ride. Scared the hell out of me. But, I was young and invinceable. Never even heard of a 401(k).
