of the 1929 Nash Roadster my dad owned when I was just a little boy.
The photo was taken circa 1940 in Tucson, Arizona.
I have fond memories of riding in the rumble seat with my
older brother and sister. I remember that it had six cylinders
and 12 spark plugs and that the radiator thermometer was
mounted on top of the radiator cap.
My dad bought the car around 1939 or 1940 for $600 (a lot of money back then).
He drove it until about 1946 when he sold it for $600. During WWII,
my mother drove us three children to and from school every day.
This qualified our family for a "B" gas rationing stamp which was
displayed on the windshield. Other items which were rationed back
then included coffee and sugar.
