Polly J 1968 Imperial convert

The Imperial Goat

I was back visiting my parents in 1969. My dad had taken his milking goat to my sisters

about 32 miles north of his place to eat her grass/ weeds. She called and asked him to

get the goat because its milking bag was huge and she did not know how to milk it. So

he asked me to take his 1968 Imperial convertable to pick it up. I put lots of newspaper

all over the back seat and floor. Top was up. Got the goat in the back seat, it had big

horns, I was worried it would puncture the top, but it didn't. I drove about 100 miles per

hour, didn't want anyone to see I had a goat in this luxury car. Got down to hometown

a guy was passing me up and looked, took a double look and almost ran int a barrier

dividing the highway. I will never forget the goat in the car. I have this car now and go

to car club functions, only has 35,000 miles on it.440 with a 4 barrel. When I was driving

the goat kept poking its head over and I had a little dog that snapped at it. Will never forget.
