  •  My first car was a 51 Studebaker PU (11+ / 0-)

    This was in 1964 when I turned 16 and got my license. A neighbor gave it to me and I fixed it up. I was the first one in my crowd to get a car so you'd get 10 guys all piled into that fior a cruise. I traded that for a '34 LaSalle thhat was cherry---big with sucide doors. I Had to abandon that when I couldn't get U Joints for it. After that I had a '57 Fairlane cherried out with mag wheels, et al untill I went into the Army.
    Whish I had any of these cars now.
    Ive had 4 VWs, 2 bugs and 2 buses. I got pretty good working on these, once completely changed the clutch in a VW bus in 45 minutes----IN THE SF AIRPORT PARKING LOT!!! At night!!  Try That one night

    Happy just to be alive
