My First Car: '48 Dodge, George Grodesky, Port Richey

'48 Dodge

This picture was taken in 1955 of my beautiful wife, Judee, me, and my first car — a 1948 Dodge with fluid drive, also overdrive. My dad helped me buy the preowned car for $200. It was a four-door sedan and fun to drive around Newton Falls, Ohio. The next year, in 1956, Judee and I were married, and this year will celebrate our 54th year of wedded bliss. I don't have the '48 Dodge that I loved, but I still have my wife, my first and only love.
