    Even worse … your first car is rated an antique!

    At my school only the rich kids drove anything, not any pluggers. AH, suburbia.

    1957 Chevy Bel Air. I wasn’t rich. The Chevy was the family car until Dad gave it to me in 1966 (Junior in High School) rather than trading it in on the new Chevy Impala.

    driving the old cars is like driving a tabletop. considering how big the engine was. and how big the front end had to be to accommodate that engine. before you squawk at me. I used to own a ’70 Buick Skylark.

    42 GMC 3/4 ton truck…235 ci 6 cylinder and a non syncro 4 speed. I started cutting and hauling firewood at 15. The truck cost $75 and we rebuilt the engine. I’ve never had a car, only Jeeps and trucks. Cars are nice to look at, but not very practical in the mountains.

    How appropriate – the postmaster is an American bald eagle. With glasses, no less!

    Our parents had a Ford station wagon. As teenagers, we had a used 1959 Ford Falcon, to share. Back then, students weren’t allowed to drive to high school unless they had an afterschool job or special parental permission to leave for a doctor or dentist appointment.
    It amazes me that now days, kids expect to be given cars when they turn 16. I was visiting someone for work one morning recently. His son came out, jumped into a new Mercades to drive to school – a half block away. Why?

    “It’s a ‘49, ’50, ’51, ’52, ’53, ’54, ’55, ’56, ’57, ’58, ’59 automobile
    It’s a ’60, ’61, ’62, ’63, ’64, ’65, ’66, ’67, ’68, ’69, ’70 automobile”

    Don’t remember the exavt year, but Dad had bought a used Monte Carlo. Circa late 70’s? WE ALL LOVED DRIVING THIS GAS GUZZLER.

    A black 1952 Buick, pulled the grill and recovered the inside of the front doors with red plastic. For dating I was allowed my mother’s ’59 with a tilting seat!!
