My first car ever was a grey 1948 Buick Special. I paid $30 for it in 1968 and criss crossed New South Wales many times in it. It wasn't pristine. I had to cut grooves in the tyres because it kept me so poor, but I loved it. However, about 6 months into its ownership I found a "like new" 1947 model" (the dark grey one on the left) and, after a stint working in a tin mine during uni holidays, I was able to bring it home. It was a wonderful old thing. I sold it eventually to a farmer at Booroowa. I wonder where it is now.
