My first treasure was when I was 14 around 1962 when I drove home a 1930 Model A coupe that I bought for $125. Ran well, but had a couple of rust holes in the lower cowl. Dad said I made a bad buy because you should never buy a car with a rust hole in the body!
That was in Pt Pleasant Beach NJ.

My Dad would have loved it but he would have made me park it in the alley behind the house and not out in the front. Kinda like when I brought my 48 Plymouth Coupe home.

I like the piston with rod and to wheel spoke being left in the wake.

And the old Ford just rambled right along.

Obviously the cartoonist is very familiar with Model "T's", I like the fact that even the snake knows enough to get out of the way!

I like the door hinge repair and rope holding the door closed. Reminds me of when I was a kid. My step dad did auto frame straightening and often when a car got hit on a diagonal corner the frame would be then "diamond" shaped underneath the sheet metal and this usually caused the doors to not close. More than once I saw a car in the parking lot with one of its doors held in place temporarily by a piece of rope. Usually my dad could "pull" the frame back to proper alignment and the doors would work again. The main problem during this operation was the glass in the car. Usually it was not a big deal unless the car was hit really hard.
