Back in 1949, when I was 13 years old, my grandfather had a 1921 Ford Model T, which I could have with my father’s permission. He gave in after I agreed to keep it off the hayfields.

When it was delivered, I asked my father to teach me how to drive it. He just started it and walked away. It was up to me to learn how.

My sister, my brother and I had a great time on the back roads.

I kept the car for two years and sold it for $5. Today, I would give $1,000 for it.
