My First Car: 1949 Chevrolet 2-door, William Penhallegon, 81, Clearwater

'49 2-door Chevrolet

In 1954, I purchased this car just before I was married and just before I had graduated from college. We drove it on our honeymoon and then we drove it to Detroit where I was to be employed. We both had always lived in the South so our first winter with snow, snow shovels and tire chains was a new experience for us. This photo is of the car after our first Detroit snowfall. Now our first car is long gone but we are still happily together after 58 years. Since we live in Florida, we haven't had any snow.
