Antique cars, antique people!

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?

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.

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!
