Chimera

I know of two uses for the term chimera. In myth the chimera is a lion with a second head of a goat and a tail ending in a snake’s head. In biology a chimera is an organism which is made up of two cell lines distinguished by their DNAs. [The human chimera is a fascinating phenomenon and usually involves the incorporation of one conjoined twin by its sibling.] On a trip through a bit of New York State this unusual chimera caught my eye. After passing it I made a mental note to stop and investigate on the return trip – and so we did. I’m no expert of Chevy classics but I’m sure this was a beauty in its day. I wonder what became of its front end?
