Ernie’s DeSoto

When I was in college I owned a 58 Plymouth Belvedere. My friend, Mike Fick, owned a 57 DeSoto.  This was in the early 60’s. Half the time neither one of us could get our cars to crank over. Then Mike would call me, or I would call Mike. Whoever it was, if he could get his car started, he’d drive over to the other guys place or wherever his car broke down, and he would give his friend a push start. You had to get up to about 6o mph for it to work. It’s a wonder we’re not both dead. At least I’m not.I don’t know about Mike.

Sorry, no color version for my early Sundays.
