    My Dad had a dark blue Pontiac Tempest that he drove forever.
    I remember in the car's last days, we had a terrible problem with the carb flooding every time you tried to start the car. Dad had all of us trained (as little kids) to jump out of the car, raise the hood, find a stick on the ground to jam open the carburetor to give it more oxygen and then he could start the car.
    Ah, the good old days!

      color, which was beautiful. It was also a lemon. Now, my uncle had the same car, same model (it was black though) and drove it from 1968 until the early 80's. Towards the end, only to the train station and back.
