  11. This has been a fun and interesting bunch posts, thanks to all that have commented. Here's mine, Dad got an offer of a job at IBM in Owego, NY in early 1957, their only car was a 1956 Century 66R they had bought used about the same time, the move to Owego from Poughkeepsie, NY was interesting with a 1 yr old and another on the way and not a lot of places to just move in, so we stayed in the motel for a few months till they found a house, unfinished, but the owners had a special needs child and were moving to FL where he could get better care.In the meantime, they needed another car so they found a 1938 Special and paid $88 for it. Slide up to 1971, 5 of us didn't fit in the 1964 Electra to well anymore and a '71 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser was in the driveway, cause the loaded '70 Estate Wagon cost too much. Of course the '38 was escorted to the backyard and one day or two by brother and i decided to see if we could play with it, we were told don't drive it around or over the septic tanks, so battery and jumper cables we put in first till we stalled it and put in reverse and stalled started it again from the battery in the wheelbarrow and we did this several times. Fast forward to 1977, I got a job in between college and grandmother with us, we went to the Buick store and found a 1976 Opel Isuzu, yellow with black stripes, stick shift and I needed a car, got it home in mom's name and we got almost home and had to go under the railroad bridge which is a stop light and mommy held the parking brake so i could let the clutch out and get up the hill, the rest is history, as JoeT gave me a heck of a lesson on shifting my '68 GS 400 Convertible, 4 speed, so look out.
