My First Car: 1955 Oldsmobile Cutlass, Don McTeer, 79, Hudson
'55 Oldsmobile Cutlass
My first wife and I bought this 1955 Oldsmobile Cutlass two-door in August 1955 for about $3,500. Our daughter learned to drive in it but one day it threw a rod while she was driving. The car was parked in the barn for a number of years until my ex-wife and her husband had it fully restored. The car now looks just as it did when we bought it. It is just driven in parades, etc. I wish I had it now.
