John Reddie was just twelve years old when his mother bought him his first car. It was a 1935 Plymouth rumble-seat coupe and cost just $15. This was the beginning of his lifelong love of and fascination with vintage American cars. In this memoir, Reddie gives a glimpse of his life as he reflects on all of the cars hea€™s owned and all of the cars he could have owned. From the misadventures to the successes, Cars I Loved and Lost narrates a trip down memory lanea€”from the first car that actually ran to the first car he actually drove. With a few repair tips included, Reddiea€™s story recalls fond memories through the lens of the automobile. Apparently I am not alone in my fondness for these gems. People invest considerable time and money into these cars, and why? Well, maybe they share my appreciation for them, in other words; they too grew up with these automobiles. They remind us of a different time, back when we were younger and carefree, when our biggest worry was having enough gasoline to get around for a day or so, even though it cost twenty five cents a gallon.I also substituted the convertible top frame because my original one did not fare that well in the fire. ... Once I got the steering column, dashboard and wiring in place, it was a milestone in the repair. ... In a neighboring state, a 1967 Plymouth Fury III four door hardtop was listed. ... The man selling the car told me that he had taken it in trade for a jeep that he had sold and had only driven it a few times.
