How were young people treated?
Adults expected a lot more from younger people and were less forgiving.
What was the most popular car?
I’d guess the ’49 Ford and the ’56 Ford Crown Victoria were the favorites, along with ’56 Chevys because that’s the first year GM came out with a V8. I had a ’40 Model Chevy I liked a lot. People liked ’58 Chevys pretty well except they were lousy cars, but pretty, and they liked the ’57 Plymouths because they had big fins. ’49 Mercurys were also popular.
Least popular cars were Nash, Hudson, Willys, ’52 Plymouth, DeSoto, ’46, ’47, ’48 Fords because they were so gawdawful ugly.
Did you like that era? Do you miss it?
I liked it fine so long as I don’t have to do it again.
