"Ah, yes ... we remember them well ... "

Those were the days; when you had an accident, you needed a good carpenter more than a mechanic. 
Those were the days of motor vehicles, not cars! Aren't they beautiful ????

Back in the days when cars had style, and even with so many makes and models, all changing every year, they made a profit. And, not only that... You could sit on the porch and name the cars as they drove by... Unlike today... When they all look the same... This was when a car was a car!!!

Unfortunately you only got 30,000 miles before a valve job and 70,000 miles complete engine rebuild. Tires lasted 10,000 miles and warranty was 90 days. Gas mileage? Forgetaboutit!!!
