    I was 20 before I was able to get a car. I paid $800 for this car with my winnings from a GI Poker Game

    Your first car was a 1950's model?

    Heck, I'm younger than you and my first car was in the 1930's!

    I've owned 27 cars since 1952:

    2 cars in the 1930's
    8 cars in the 1940's
    3 cars in the 1950's
    2 cars in the 1960's
    1 car in the 1970's
    1 car in the 1980's
    4 cars in the 1990's
    6 cars in the 2000's

    7 four-cylinder cars
    11 six-cylinder cars
    8 V8 cars
    1 Straight Eight car!

    8 New Cars out of the 27.

    My first car was a 1934 Plymouth Six, for which I paid $35. (See Photo)
