My First Car


In Muscatine on Wednesday, September 7, 1955, Dale wrote that he and Helen sold my 1946 Chevy Club Coupe (similar to above) for $100, since I no longer had summer income for upkeep.  Bought on May 29 for $95, I only had it for three months, so the folks made $5 on their investment.  The gearshift lever was on the steering column, and it would unpredictably jump out of gear at random times, which only endeared it to me.
