Antique cars, antique people!

antique car - This car was on display at a local antique car show lately. I liked the way it was painted, among other things! Some of my friends used to drive cars like this!

I went to a car show a couple of weeks ago. I am not especially a car nut, but most of the men in my life have been, so I know more about cars that I really ever wanted to know! Anyway, I kind of enjoyed seeing some of the old cars. Actually, I remembered driving some of them! When I was a teenager, I drove my mother's car. It was a '48 Pontiac. I would tell people I could go from 0 to 60 in 30 minutes flat!! lol Driving around town--or cruisin' as we called it, was a big part of my teen years! Gas only cost 25 cents a gallon then! What memories do you have of cars in your life?

Hi Honey I do love the car shows but hate when I run into the sports cars area usually driven by middle to old age men that are lacking somewhere else! xoxoxoxoxoxo

Picture of a Ford Fiesta - The Ford Fiesta my parents had was yellow. Yellow!
I remember when I was 16 I would drive from my home in Norman to see a friend in Del City. Gas was 75 cents there. That was only 11 years ago! Man that is pathetic. I remember when I was four my parent's Ford Fiesta was stolen. Ford Fiesta! Isn't that hilarious? They were poor so it wasn't a big deal to them when they got it back. The thieves really couldn't make it look worse.

I drove a Ford Falcom for about a year. Worst car I ever owned!! It only had a 12 gallon tank and got about 10 to the gallon. I was always at the pump!! Thank God gas wasn't $4 a gallon then!

My first car was a 1929 DeSota, with 2 spare wheels mounted in the front fenders. I payed $50.00 for it and ended up giving it away. It'd be worth a Small fortune today! Another favorite car was a 1967 Cougar, lemon yellow, with black leather upholstery. It cost $4300.00, and I eventually traded it for a half-ton truck! Speaking of antique people, Yup thats me!

Oh, good. I was beginning to think I was the only antique on this site! I remember the yellow Cougar well, A friend of mine had one. It was a beauty! That DeSoto would be a valuable antique today! Thanks for the reply and the memories.

You are right on. The retro look in some of the cars goes back to the 30's and 40's! Thanks for the reply.
