It was 1959, and we were about to drag our tired overworked
selves to Akron to shop for a new (used) car. It was a
Saturday as we headed into town.

Earlier that week I had seen this grand old car on a
side street with a "For Sale" sign attached. Just on a whim,
I decided to drive past it on the way to Honest John's
Much to my surprise, Carol spotted it before I did, and
exclaimed in excitement over itas we approached. I had NO IDEA
she liked old cars! What a grand surprise.
We bought it for $325.
We owned this fantastic machine for four years, selling it in 1963
for $250. Two of our children arrived home in this car. I used
to take my IBM customers to lunch in it as a treat. It was
VERY painful to part with it and to this day I regret doing so.
Here is a dashboard view, taken the day it was sold.
