Default More history from Clem Clement

Daddy's prewar early V-8s.
He traded frequently as he was very hard on his cars. He drove daily doing his salesman's rounds plus always looking for a new place to sell a Page fence. Notice by the cars he traded in, that I don't have a complete set of records. Some time in 1934 after he bought the 34, he splurged and got a radio and then moved it to his 1935 car. He was quick to get a new car after the war.
Golly what if one of his cars is still around... I cry for my first car (a '40 Merc Convertible sedan) which now sleeps in another man's garage, but what if one of Daddy's lives???

I bet he has sticker shock when he bought the 46!

I nlove stuff like this. I was thinking the same thing about sticker shock. I also noticed after the war the trade in's wern't worth much, the 41 Ford only brought $25 allowance! Probably because they were all wore out and EVERYONE was trying to get rid of them!
During the war my dad traded for a used 40 Ford convertible, his 36 Chevy had given it up. As soon as the war was over He bought a new car as soon as he could, was glad to get $50 for the Ford! For $50 I sure wish he had just parked it in the barn!
