First Family Car
My grandpa and great-grandpa with his first car, a 1947 Chevy, pictured here outside of their home on 33rd and Becher on the south side of Milwaukee.
My great-grandpa purchased the car in 1947 for $1200 with the intent of turning around and selling it since he could fetch a good profit off it due to high demand. He received the car in 1948 and decided to keep it despite being offered almost double what he paid for it during his first trip to the gas station to fuel up. 
Shortly thereafter my grandpa almost crashed the damn thing when he snuck it out early one winter morning to try and do his paper route with it. Kids, hey?
