It was a 1959 Desoto Station Wagon, sea green although I called it mint green because it reminded me of the sickly green color of those square little mints that everyone used back them..they came in pink, white, green, maybe even yellow and they appeared at every function you attended. It had push button drive, the little square buttons were located on the dash to the left of the steering wheel. It was as big as a battleship and really hard to parallel park..but it did have power steering. It had a seat way in the back that faced backwards..handy if you want to see where you have been. It was purchased from Bob and Mary Harris sometime in 1967. Far Guy’s Dad bought it, and Far Guy used it.
Far Guy was very proud of his car, he washed and waxed it, and took it into the Skelly Station for lots of repairs. There was only one mechanic by the name of Les that was allowed to work on her. Yes, she was a "her." One evening we were on our way someplace, and "her" oil warning light came on. This really upset Far Guy, he kept one eye on the light and one eye on the road..and was ignoring me. I am a fairly helpful person, so I popped my bubble gum out of my mouth and stuck it right into the instrument panel covering up the red oil light. I declared it fixed! We still didn’t get to go on our date, unless you count a soda and a candy bar at the Skelly Station a date:)
