Buick's 1957 Electra has always, always had a grip on me. The late Lily Welty of Hill City owned one and as a kid, I was taken at first sight!

Adding to the adoration of this Buick, my late brother Rich bought me a red, white and black AMT promo car. One of the very few toys I wish I had kept.

The word Electra also resonated with me in an astronomical way as I knew one of the stars in the Pleiades cluster was so named.

OK, I rolled with it. Much more elegant than a typical night sky with clouds!
