    I can use AM radio, and my car has two doors and another two doors. Close enough.

    And your grandchild has no idea which way clock-wise is, because the clock in your truck hasn’t worked since his mother was born.

    I remember my first car A/C. It was a model 4/60 and only worked on the highway. Four open windows and sixty miles per hour.

    I so WISH my truck was a stick. Hate automatics, not the same control potential for me.

    Manual Transmissions can now be considered a Millennial anti-theft device……

    A vinyl bench seat you can hose down. No air conditioning, but a heater that can defrost a two story building.

    Buying a new car was quite simple in the BAD old days. The only two options were radio and heater but most cars came with those standard. Automatic transmissions were only offered in luxury cars until the late 1950’s. As for a/c, most people could only dream about it until the early 1970’s when it became fairly commonplace. I was a senior in college when I acquired my first car with a/c, a 1966 Dodge Monaco. It had several other options which were also quite rare in those days: power windows, steering and brakes. The power windows were great …. until the motor died which was a frequent occurrence mainly the driver’s. They were a bitch to replace and expensive causing me to find myself missing the old manually cranked ones that hardly ever failed.

    It’d be nice to have those window vents again.

    Good luck finding a pickup like that for under 20,000.

    One of the nicest thing about the older cars was it was a lot easier to work on them yourself. As a girl growing up, I was not allowed to take shop classes and my dad moved around with the army too often (and I was too shy) to try and make friends with people who did work on their own cars (my dad did NOT work on his own cars). So I missed my opportunity to learn much about cars. I did learn the very, very basics (from my mother – a farmer’s daughter) – how to check what fluids I could, where to add those fluids, learned enough about the basics of cars so I could understand what the mechanics where talking about, could change a tire on my own and tell when they needed to be changed, knew the difference between front wheel drive and rear wheel drive as far as which end gets the new tires if I am only getting two. :o) That one I only learned as an adult – I will admit that. But, boy, can I tell the difference in bad weather!
