Kittanning Leader Times
The '57 Chevy Convertible
During the summer of 1957 my Father announced that he had decided to buy a new car. I was a little puzzled by this since our current family sedan was only one year old. I had just turned sixteen at the time, and didn't take too much interest in the affairs of adults, but was excited by the prospect of getting my driver's license in the near future. When the day arrived to pick up the new car Dad asked if I wanted to ride along to the dealership with him. During the trip, I asked what model and color he had bought. He replied that it was a brown four door Chevrolet sedan. I wasn't too thrilled by the thought of being seen riding around in a brown four door sedan, but was willing to drive anything, as long as I could actually drive.
When we arrived at the dealership I was told to wait in the parking lot as he went in to sign the paperwork for the new car. Imagine my surprise when the garage door opened, and my Dad drove out a beautiful yellow '57 Chevy convertible, top down, and shining chrome everywhere. This was my Dad's new car and I was actually going to be allowed to drive it when I got my license!
There were plenty of parental rules and curfews that had to be obeyed to retain the privilege of driving that car, but Dad knew what he was doing, and the rules and curfews were always faithfully observed. I wasn't about to do anything that would jeopardize my driving that car!
Looking back on that summer day fifty five years ago, I often remember what a nice thing that was for my parents to do for me.
