I learned to drive in my dad's '55 Pontiac. It was a tank, and my arms hurt from trying to turn the wheels back and forth to park (no power steering or brakes, roll down windows, AM radio. I wish I still had that beauty!

Those old car were great, except for the fact they don't give. If these were two cars from the 50s someone would have been killed. Accidents look worse now but are more safe.
