I had earned money picking cherries, tomatoes and cider apples. I was 16 and had taken Driver Ed from Mr. P. My boyfriend, who lived two miles away, and I were picked up from home. Mr. P always complained that we were the slowest to change places. We had learned where the blind spot was to steal a kiss.
I asked my dad if I could buy a car. He said I had to have the money for the car and the insurance. I carried the cash and walked 3 miles to Middleport. A high school graduate owned the used car place. He had a car for $800, put plates on it, we had a done deal. He said I had good looking legs in high school. My sister told me he said the same thing to her. Good salesmanship – he sold two cars.
