Setting is on the south outskirts of Duran, New Mexico on a July night in the year 1960 at 2:07 am. A moment ago the 1960 Chevy Impala (then a new car) traveling north on Highway 54 met a southbound passenger train. In the '60 Chevy is a teenage ferret couple out on a date. They seem to be in a hurry to get home, and for good reason. In fact, they had the car up to 90 mph before they came through Duran (heck, that's 10 mph faster than the passenger train was going). Both the male ferret and his fiancee are out really late...In fact, being out past 2:00 am is not going to go over well with the parents considering the parents of both ferret teens told them to be in no later than 10:00 pm. And the male is driving Daddy's brand new Chevy, and in a day and time before cell phones were around, and being out of change to use a pay phone to let their parents know they're okay (it didn't dawn on them to call collect).
