Cars certainly are a part of our lives! Thanks for sharing some of your memories.

Your article surely brought back memories from another era: the days when you could patch up your car and make it last a long time. Nowadays a car owner does well to be able to change the oil and lube the vehicle.

I remember our old '73 pickup truck, with the hole in the floor on the passenger side. I took a piece of plywood and fitted it into the hole to prevent my feet from dropping down. Then I patched the rusty door frame and made makeshift rocker panels. It really didn't look bad after I painted all the restoration areas. Those were the days, huh?!
