My first car was a 1957 Chevy, purchased at Felix Chevrolet.

The school nurse (I forget her name) drove a British racing green Jag XKE, which she frequently parked in the breezeway outside her office, so that she could keep her eye on it.

Bill Stull drove a poison green one-gear fat-tire bicycle. He never rode it to SHHS for fear someone would steal it and leave him an XKE.

Bill’s best H.S. friend’s dad dry-docked a massive black non-running ‘50s Cadillac in the family garage on South Orchard. It was the go-to social club for aspiring juvenile delinquents.

In the 1963-1964 school year, one of the parents drove a pink Bentley sedan to pick up his or her children, I remember distinctively sitting on a bench in front of the school one rainy afternoon at 3 PM with Dave Andersen, and he identified it, Always wondered who that was,

Did Mrs, Julie Ritner Simpson have a T-Bird?
