When my wife, Alice, was growing up her dad lost a great part of his eye sight due to cataracts and although he had a nice 1934 Lincoln 4 door sedan, he just could not see well enough to drive it. Alice’s Mother didn’t drive, so the car just sat for about 18 years and deteriorated. Hence , Alice never learned to drive. In 1959, after 6 years of marriage, I decided that one way or another, she was going to learn how to drive, so I bought her this car and told her it was just going to sit in front of the house until she learned to drive, which she eventually did. The car was a two tone lemon and off white color with a leather interior.
