‘I was born a Ramblin’ Man …’

RambleRamaOK, maybe I wasn’t born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus, rollin’ down Highway 41, like it says in the Allman Brothers’ song, but I did spend chunks of my “formative years” in the back seat and “way-back” of my parents’ Rambler Ambassador station wagon. The one you see here was an earlier version of the trusty family vehicle in which I was often a passenger, and later a driver.

The scene depicted here – I’m guessing it’s from the late 1960s – is an example of GEICO’s fondness for partnering with local businesses and charities to build community. This display of the latest Rambler models gave a local dealership a chance to show off its wares for hundreds of potential customers to see as they entered or exited the corporate headquarters.

The Allman Brothers just retired, and Rambler went out of business years ago, but that patio at our headquarters is still there, and is often used for warm-weather cookouts and other special events. And our penchant for giving local organizations opportunities to visit us and market their products or recruit volunteers remains as well. Helping local businesses and charities thrive AND offering our associates convenient, on-site access to them – that’s a winning proposition for all concerned.

What cars – or songs – remind you of your youth? Tell us in the comments.
