so i stopped over at the grandparents house today and gramps was asking about my "new" old car, when was built, what it was, etc etc, i was telling him about it and he got all excited, next thing you know he was telling stories about his old cars. turns out he had a 26 Chevy fordor and a 36 ford and an auburn, he loved telling me about it, he bought the 26 from his neighbor for 25 bucks in 1940 when he was 15, had the car for a few years and drove it to San Diego when he enlisted in the army, not long after he moved to San Francisco and sold the car and bought this 36 ford from the owner of the Texaco station he worked at (full service back then he says) had motor issues and he rebuilt it and drove it back to Minneapolis to get my grandma and drove back to San Fran, he says that old car made it out and back 4 more times before they settled here and he went to driving a "brand new" 60 or 61 international semi truck hauling gas in an old single axle tanker. he went on and on for about 3 hours telling me how when Henry Ford started building cars you could have any color you wanted as long as it was black. was just a good all around day for me as hes in his late 80's and starting to lose his mind a bit so i know times like this are not going to last and soon the memories will be fading away. just wanted to share that with all of you, sit and talk to the old dogs that lived when these cars were modern of the day. anybody else sit and just talk with the old bucks?
