      • My grandfather always drove a Dodge or a Chrysler, fins and all. Sitting in them made me feel like I was riding on a luxury mattress. I’m dating myself. I remember when gas was 19 cents a gallon. When it went to 25 cents we blamed it on the new highway.

      • I almost forgot about the neighborhood gas station gas wars. And now as it turns out, we find that the oil wars have taken a heavy toll on humanity. I guess that’s the real gas war.

        We always had Chevys when I was growing up, including the 1959 Batmobile with the huge fins. I wasn’t crazy about the steel dashboard especially when my head hit it. At least there was plenty of floor space in which to recover from my head injuries. Lol!

      • Yes, but let me tell you my Edsel story. Be prepared to be scared.

        Six kids and a Sunday ride through the mountains above Estes Park, Colorado. My father decides to travel off the main highway and treat us to an adventure. Half way up a steep incline and the engine conks out. Finally after minutes of tinkering under the hood (and a car load of kids and their mother keeping watch in hopes that no one comes up from behind us), the car starts. Yippee, EXCEPT it will not drive forward! What to do? Well, cars not stalled, engines ago, so my dad puts it into reverse. Double YIPPEE!

        I tell you, you have not lived until you have “enjoyed” backing down a gravel, very narrow, mountain road. There’s just nothing more thrilling to six kids, a man reading a review mirror and a woman screaming, “Chuck, get over, the cars too close to the side of the mountain!”

        After we hit the State road the car was parked along a “safe” spot and my father set out on foot to find help. My mother no longer had a voice and the six of us knew well enough to go into silent mode.

        The very next day my father drove a Ford a Galaxy.

      • Adventure! The mountains are really rough on cars. Nowadays, so many people have 4 wheel drive, all terrain vehicles, they can really get into some trouble in the mountains. I really admire your dads ability to backup down the mountain. People with 4 wheel drive today cannot do that.

      • My dad was a “macho man.” 😉 if he ever feared anything, I was not aware. But, sadly, I think he paid an emotional price for it. He went into the Navy, thru two wars and probably was reprogrammed into a mode of thinking, “Do or die,” okay for wartime, but it is difficult once it’s behind you.
