My first car was a 1960 pale yellow Corvair, the one that had the trunk in the front and the motor in the back. We`d put our lunch money together and go to the Star gas station and pump $1.00 worth of gas. (Sometimes we only had 50 cents) I could get 9 girls in that car. We named it "The Yellow Submarine" after the Beatle`s song. When the radio played that song my car would be swaying from left to right as we swayed and sang along.
As you know Salem didn`t have any one way streets. The first time we (I won`t name names, you know who you are) ventured to the big city of Mt. Vernon I turned down a main street and everyone was going the wrong way!! Well you know who was messed up. I didn`t know what to do, everyone was honking at me. So I did what any smart 16-year old girl would do. I stopped in the middle of the street, put The Yellow Submarine in reverse and went backward with the traffic. Oh boy was that fun. We got out of town as fast as we could.
