Setting is on a stretch of Highway 54 between Vaughn, New Mexico and the hometown of Pastura. It is on a July night in the year 1960 at around 2:30 am. Two teenage ferrets (both age 16) are out on a date way beyond the time their parents told them to be back home. The car is a brand new 1960 Chevy Impala belonging to the male teen ferret's dad. The young ferrets are in a hurry to get home, and for good reason...The male ferret and his fiancee are out really late...In fact, being out past 2:30 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. The male is driving Daddy's brand new Chevy about as fast as it can go, so he and his fiancee can get home sooner...At 120 mph, the broken lines on the road were looking like white dots flashing by, and the power line poles sort of looked like a picket fence. The sound of the car was about like the 15 seconds following the chosen time in the video link. https://youtu.be/wQ9cSfyCyYY?t=71
1960 was 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.
