My First Car
I was just reading an article where people were telling about their first car. What model and year was your first car? Mine was a 1954 Ford Fairlane, baby blue in color. I was already married and had my first child. I didn't drive or have a car as a teen because my daddy didn't think women should drive. Thank goodness Mel my deceased husband felt differently. He always made sure I had transportation. This ford fairlane was completely wrecked but a late model car at the time when we bought it. Mel did all the body work and painted it that baby blue. It was a good car but we finally decided to buy a new car and sell that one. We ran an ad and a man came to look at it for his wife while Mel was at work. He looked it over and liked it and told me so. He studied it and pondered and finally ask if I was sure it was a 1954. I told him I'll show you the title. He bought it and when Mel came home I told him how the man had questioned me about the year. He laughed and told me he had not been able to find a '54 back end and had to put a '52 on it. Looked okay to me the years I drove it and I bet it looked okay to that man's wife. Tell me about your first car.
