    On this day, 40 years ago, my youngest son was born. 2 days later I brought him home in this car, which I still have.

        You have so many memories through your cars. Somehow you managed to keep many of them, or acquire them back like the 40. Were seat belts a concern 40 years ago?

          No seatbelts. Still dont have them. The x wife held the kid in her lap on the 30 mile ride home from hospital. Today I would be in jail for that, but somehow we survived.

            Our oldest was born in 1977. The hospital put the baby in a cardboard box with handles, the kind you get oranges in. I'm not fooling.

            She rode home on the front floor of our '72 Gran Torino Sport between my wife's feet!! All was well no problems nobody thought twice about it.

            I think people are very over the top on caution these days. I never had a bike helmet. I rode in the front seat of my mother' car, standing up on the seat. We play cops a robbers with cap guns, we rode bicycles 20 or more miles a day, my boy scout troop had each boy carry a 6 inch sheath knife on his belt, we had guns on the farm to shoot woodchucks, (I stll have my octogon barrel Savage), we took our cars to the drag strip and raced them without seat belts, I walked half a mile on the state highway to my school bus stop, and somehow we survived. Look at what we have today.

            For those who do not look at the V8 forum, or have not seen my web site, there are photos of my 40 ford, which I just bought back from the guy I sold it to 43 years ago. I sold it to pay the hospital bill for my older son being born. He died 2 year ago. My daughter came home from the hospital in the 40 ford when born, which was the only car I had at the time. She is 45 years old now.

            That was great that you were able to locate and buy back your first car, the 1940 Ford.
            It's really nice that the other guy restored it back to factory condition also. I like your choice for the license plate.
