'41

Luxury Liner Dodge Fluid Drive

I bought this car in 1957 at the age of 18 for $95 when I was transferred to Pensacola Naval Air Station right out of boot camp for the Navy. I used it to run around the base and to go back and forth to Mobile with the guys from the base whenever we had liberty. It was perfect for that because it came with an Alabama tunnel sticker so we could zip back and forth with no fees. But it didn't zip, it drove like an old tank. It barely got us to our destination and back to the base. After a couple of months of breaking down I traded it in on a 1950 Ford. The dealer gave me 10 bucks for it and I was happy to get it.
