50 years ago I was 21 and just back from overseas, (army) and bought my first used car. A 55 Olds Delta 88, two tone green. 23 cents a gallon for gas, life was good.

Yes..I was just 22 and traded my BSA Golden Flash with sidecar for a 1957 Ford Anglia...3 speed vacuum wipers which always quit when going uphill. The only reason I got it was because it seemed like it rained every day in jolly old and I was tired of getting wet! aagh the memories.....

A 1955 Oldsmobile Super 88 Holiday Sedan. That's a four-door hardtop. Mine was like the first picture below except mine was dark gray where the pictured one is coral.

And here I thought I might be the only one with a 1958 Buick...

Oh well, I wasn't driving it much until the next year, when I got to drive it to high school daily (class of '66, REPRESENT!...)

I did get to drive my grandparent's 1962 Buick LeSabre some though.

It did have power steering...

A '56 Chevy 2dr Post, 265 inch power pack, three on the tree w/OD. American Racing mag wheels that the prior owner installed...a cool car for cruising Maine Street.... But not nearly as nice as the '65 Impala hardtop that replaced it!

Spring of '65 I was 17, and my Dad bought a new loaded Country Squire. Somehow I managed to convince him (or he let me think that) to max out the engine upgrade and go with the 427. God, that was a fun summer! Looking back from present, I now realize how lucky I was to survive it!

A few years later I bought my own car (that I could afford)-- 1948 Plymouth, bought from the original owner for a C-note. Sic transit gloria.
