I have bought and sold traded antique cars all my life. I have had at lease 20 Model A's, 7Model T's, 3, 29's,3 or 4 30's 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 38, 4, 39's, 40, 48, 50, 51,53, 3,55, 56,57, and a 62. Today I am working on a 32 Ford but always looking out what out there. Some of them I do miss but I know there another one out there for sale.

I replied earlier. I guess I tend to keep things a long time. I was dating my future wife when I bought my 1934 pickup in 1957. we now are in our 57th year. Turns out to-day is the 50 year anniversary of the day we moved into our house on the St Clair River in Corunna Ontario.

I bought my 32 Model B 5 window in August of 1969 for $300. I still have it.
I borrowed $150 from my girlfriend Donna to buy it.
For years I would tell her "the only reason I married you was so I wouldn't have to pay you back the $150" she would always say " I know that, just make sure you tell the Divorce Lawyer it's half my car".
She passed away in July of 2006. We were married for 35 years.

I have owned my 1930 Model A since being a junior in high school in 1960.
I have owned my 1936 Ford Roadster for the past 14 years. Both are stock and restored to original condition. Gnolnor

Me and my brothers standing in front of my Merc about 1966. Of course it was my dad's at that time and we were just the noisy kids that rode in the back seat. I think Dad bought the 52 Merc in the fall of 1959 so its been a few years.
