My Dad and myself, proud as punch in that cool Lincoln, 1949

My Dad and myself, proud as punch in that cool Lincoln, 1949

Photo taken in Cleveland Ohio by my mom on a Sunday drive down to Lake Erie.

That new Lincoln

Folks always thought we were rich because my dad got a new car every year. That however was not the case. Dad was on the road as a sales representative for a big company and put more than 100,000 miles on a car every year! By then it was pretty well shot, he used to buy Fords and Mercurys but one fateful winter day he was on a trip and a farmer with a hay wagon failed to stop at the highway he was on and dad hit him broadside and by the grace of God he survived without a scratch. His next car was this Lincoln Cosmopolitan and he wanted a more road worthy automobile and he got it much against my mother's wishes. Boy was she mad when he brought that car home but I loved it and still do after all these years. So much so I am going to post the picture of the car I now own. I am just as proud of that one as I was of Dad's. He inspired me. Father like son they always say.
