1957 Ford Convertible

In 1957, after we were married, we bought a 1957 Ford 4-door hardtop convertible. A hardtop convertible has no center post so when all the windows are rolled down, it's a free space from front to back. A very cool car. It looked just like this, but with a hard top and different colors - salmon and white. Unfortunately, while it was "new" (a demo), we soon found out it was also a "lemon." The front windshield leaked, and the dealer wasn't able to fix it. The front seats began to wear out almost immediately. We traded it for a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air, blue and white.
