An Automotive First Vehicle Podcast Story
In this episode I share the story of my first vehicle, a 1954 Ford truck. It was mechanically worn and un-reliable with faded paint and doors that often wouldn’t latch properly. Though the transmission and brakes worked amazingly well while driving, I never knew if the engine would start. Once started, though, it ran like the “Little Truck That Could.”
I end my story reminiscing about my next two vehicles, a Corvair Monza and my favorite, the 1968 Camaro that I wish I still had.
Key Talking Points
- First vehicle purchase price
- A worn out 6 cylinder engine
- Never new when it would start
- Mom’s frequent trips to jump start the truck
- Driver door pops open
- Quick discussion about my next two vehicles
