Some Serious Money There

Besides the almost new Ford coupe, there are quite a few recent model cars in that group, including the 1939 Oldsmobile with the dented fenders and the 1940 Chevrolet beside it.

But in the back row behind the Ford pickup is a 1939 Buick Limited and it looks like a LaSalle beside the pickup.

I knew it!

Knowing Shorpy, I knew this would end up being a car-judging contest instead f horses!

My first car

1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe. I bought it in June 1952 after graduating from high school for $225, earned as a part-time stock boy at a department store in Denver.

Second choice car

There's a '39 coupe hiding behind the buildings that's just about as nice as the '40. I'd take either.

Popular then and now

That 1940 Ford coupe in the foreground was a winner then and highly sought after today.
