Mine was a Chevy pickup also, but an older '53 five window with an engine so worn and leaking oil through the rear seal that I had to stop by a Foley-Newsome gas station each morning headed to school and put a quart of 10 cent re-refined 40 wt. oil in it. Second was a '57 Chevy two door (w/posts and not the popular hardtop of that era) that had the small block 283 V8 and three on the tree tranny! Yep, and I too made that mistake back then by trading that fine auto on something I thought was newer and better - those cars today, even the post models, are bringing easily twenty five to thirty grand - what a dummy I was!
