Some that I remember are the Cadillac LaSalle, Crosley, Desoto, Hudson Terraplane, Henry J, Allstate(Sears sold the Henry J under their name), cushman motor scooters, and Isettas. My favorite cars that I had were a 31 model A coupe, 55 Ford Crown Victoria, 1960 Impala with the 348 engine with 3 carbs from the factory, 1962 Impala SS with the 409 engine, and a 1968 Camaro with the 396 engine. Man those were the good old days!!!!! Have a goodun!!!!

I am an old fart! But you must even have a few years on me. I learned to drive in a 47 chevy pick-up chasing rabbits and yots in CO. My first car (I bought) was a 55 Ford. You can keep your chevy's.

Howdy,
well, how about Gillette red and blue blades. Can you remember pumping gas up into the container on top of the pump and then putting it into the car with gravity feed? I remember 9 cent picture shows and 10 cent popcorn. I also remember 3 cent postage stamps and penny post cards. Remember I was 11 months old before Pearl Harbor was bombed. Have a goodun!!!

If I remember correctly, my 1st car, a 37 Chevy coupe had a Stromberg Carlson 3 bolt carb on a straight 6 292.I remember putting $.50 cents worth of gas in it and driving to school for 2 days. My 56 Victoria had a 312 T-bird engine. It would out run the PaSPs. I kept extra push rods in the glove box because every time I drove it over 120 MPH it would swallow one or two. Then I had a 57 fairlane 292 that couldn't get out of its own way.
