In 1959, I drove our '56 Chevy 1500 mi from Lincoln, NE to Rocky Mount, NC, with faulty fuel pump. First noticed it in Iowa; when wife would accelerate to pass a car, we would get up beside the other car & engine would quit. I could drive it and accelerate very slowly, keeping it running. Drove it all the way myself, nonstop, except for fuel, etc., 30 hours - Sat., Sat. night & most of Sun. I absolutely could not drive so long now. Very dangerous trip, of course. We were very lucky. Installed new pump on Mon.
