First Car
MAY
15

I was 21 in 1955 and just returned from two years in Japan and Korea and still in the Air Force. I had never owned a car before and had been saving while overseas in hopes of getting a car when I returned. Shortly after I got home and was on leave, I began looking. I could not afford a new one but found a real good Ford that i fell in love with. It was the salesman’s 1954 Ford Victoria Hardtop, green with a white (cream) top. It had 18,000 miles and in exclent shape. It cost $1800 and I put $500 down and payed $75 a month for 18 months to pay it off. I have had many Fords since then but I will never forget my first car.
