They met in high school. Bev was a cheerleader, Joe played sports. The pair got married, and the first car they shared, driving off into their mutual futures together on their wedding day, was a 1948 Plymouth convertible. As is often the case with first cars – and especially cars as classically stylish and memorable as the Plymouth – they were left with nothing but fond memories after being forced to sell the car after Joe was drafted into the military.
There's nothing quite like memories of ones first car to rev up the engine to the old wayback machine. No matter what your age, it seems, thinking of that car you had when you were young tends to stir reminiscence of happy days and simpler times.
