I have been thinking about my first car. Grandpa's 1941 Cadillac with 62,000 miles on the odometer. Following are some pictures I found on the web that totally remind me of the car. The car is definitely a good memory. I took possession of this car in about 1963 the year I graduated from high school.
This is a flathead V8. I remember the car was easy to brake and steer even though it was very heavy and neither brakes or steering were power assisted. It did have a nice clock, vacuum powered antennae and phenomenal hood latch.
