1936 Chevy 4-door.
First was a '36 coupe that my dad bought on my 15th birthday. He paid $20 to a guy who was going to rebuild the engine, but panicked when he got it apart. Dad told me that if I got it running by my 16th birthday, I could have it. I made it with 2 days to spare. Unfortunately, back in the fifties most parents wouldn't let their teenaged daughters single date, so I traded for the sedan.
I don't remember the girl's name, but I can close my eyes and see that little Chevy coupe.

1958 Pontiac.

It was an all white 1958 Pontiac Super Chief sedan with lovely gray button tufted seats that had been driven from new as a Santa Barbara County car by a female social worker until the County -finally retired it.

I bought it for $175 from a Ken Porter Auction in 1969. The car had just 82,000 miles on it, and was mint except for the carpet by the gas pedal which had been destroyed by the social worker's high heel shoe. And a cracked in the bell housing.

Big 386 V8 engine in it, I used to go around to the gas stations around Santa Barbara at night and drain the hoses into it, you could get a couple of free gallons of gas that way.

I finally sold it after a few months for $200 to a teenage girl in San Rafael.

I last saw it on the road in 1971.

That car was a huge GM monster, maybe there is one like it still on the road in Cuba today
