The topic of superstitions came up with a bunch of car buddies of mine. I remember that my grandpa always glued a wheat penny that was issued in his birth year to the dash of all his cars. I can picture the 1930 penny shining on the dash of his '51 Caddy to this day. I plan on gluing one to the dash of my '30 Model A in honor of him. Also, my dad wouldn't start a vehicle with his right hand. He always reached through the steering wheel and started it with his left hand. When I asked him about it, he said it was just a habit he picked up because his first vehicle was a '69 F-100 that had the ignition switch on the left. I was told by my mother after he passed away that it was really because he always held her hand while they were in a vehicle. Any one else have any cool car related quirks or superstitions to share?
