"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... ... In 1942 my grandfather brought me home in this car from the hospital after I was born. He sold it to me when I was 16 years old for $1. This year, 68 years later, my son and I brought my grandson home from the hospital in the same car. It's a keeper and someday my grandson will be the proud owner of Pa's '39."
