Great story!  And what a beautiful car! 

Just think, Dave, maybe in a few years they'll be doing a similar story about you and your 1974 Pinto.  batEyes

LOVE IT! And no seat belts! Believe it or not, she cannot get a ticket for not having them....the car is in original condition and back then, seat belts were not a mandatory option....I have a friend who used to drive a '68 Mustang, and she got pulled over for not having the light by her license plate. He was ready to write her up when he boyfriend said, "You can't give a ticket for something the car was made without." He was right and the cop had to back off....  HeeHee

Really Rhonda?! I was just about to respond about that, but wow...I guess that makes sense, but gosh! Just seems so unsafe!

Great story!  I remember being in love with the Mustang when it first came out.  Such a cool car.

It is ridiculous how much better cars used to look. Cars just don't have any character now.

I wish I didn't have to have bucket seats. I completely agree with her there!

My mother always talks about the 1957 Chevy that her father had. His was a red one, though.

I don't deny it. I am always jealous when I see people with older cars.  Blue

greenS  I'll have you know, Commander Wisenheimer, that this was my first car - a 1966 Olds Jetstar.  This isn't actually it; I googled the pic.  It was ten years old when I bought it, and only had 5,000 miles on it.

SURE you were ten years old Rob! And the Pope is Jewish!

My first car was a 65 Chevy Malibu Convertible.........I wish I had it now! That's when cars were cars........and by the way.........I was 19! Of course Rob was only nine then!

My dad has had a 1930 Ford Model A since before I was born (the car is many years older than my dad, by the way  grinsmiley ) and it has no seatbelts, and a rumble seat. I love riding in the rumble seat!

About a year ago he also bought a 1974 Chevy Nova to restore. It's just getting to be road-ready now. The first time he drove it in the yard, he used old telephone books as a seat because he had taken the regular seats out of it. Since then, the bucket seats are back in it  greenS

Is the Chevy Nova the Dukes of Hazzard car? I can't remember what they drove but it looks like it....
