My first experience was my dads 48 Chrysler.
it was big and blue is all I can remember.
There was a story that we got 2 feet of snow over night. Dad tied a 2x12 board to the front bumper , got a running start, and plowed his way down the driveway. Cut the ropes when he got to the road and went to work.
My self I had bought a 76 Roadrunner, dad had a slant 6 Aspen. Later I bought a 72 cornet for the winter. I finally stumbled on to my 51 Cambridge with a built up slant 6 a few years ago.
