John Echoff's First Car

John Echoff's First Car

On the back of the photo, the caption reads:
John's first car ever owned
1949 Mercury
"The Bomb"

In the "Miscellaneous Thoughts or Simply Idle Chatter" thread, John decribes his car in this way..."No radio or heater, just transportation, some time the windshield wipers worked, but mostly not. It's a wonder we all didn't die from exhaust gases during cold weather, but somehow we made it thru. And those were the good old days!"

Yes, John - they were THE GOOD OLD DAYS!!! And thanks for bringing back more memories with your photos.
