From reading the posts I think most of us dreamed of hot rods or customs or even OT muscle cars when we were in high school. But most kids in high school could not afford their dream car until later. Some of us still haven't. My first car, a 56 Ford Fairlane 2 door sedan was not my dream car or even my choice. My dad mandated that choice. I didn't really get my choice pick until I came back from overseas and 22 years old. From there I started getting old cars to play with. My real dream car came in 1974 when I bought my 32 Ford coupe at a car show swap meet. Cost me a month 's pay. So, how old were you when you bought and kept the car of your dreams or desires?
