Perhaps it has already been discussed here. Still some punches on my new guy card left.... What was your first auto? Mine was 1956 Ford F-100 Pickup. It had a Borg-Warner T-98 4-speed with a granny 1st gear, so you always started in 2nd. It had a 272 C.I. Y-Block and 3.73 rear end gears. It always started, even in the dead of winter. You just pulled out the choke a little, and va voom it was lit. Solid as a rock those old Ford pick-ups. Drove it for many years with no problems. I had it in high school. Yes I obtained it as a used auto and my high school years were later than the 50s or 60s. How about you? Like your first love, one never forgets that special first one.
