Just another one of my stories to share,

In 1973 my first wife and I lived in a small mobile home and it had a nice side porch that we enjoyed sitting on in the summer. The house next door was owned by the same guy and my folks lived in it so we had a nice place to live. This was in Roseburg, Oregon and I also worked as a checker at the Safeway store in town.
One afternoon I saw a black 1957 Lincoln pull up in front. The guy got out, came over and introduced himself and said he heard that I liked old cars.
I said yes and he went on to tell me that he bought this Lincoln Premiere new from Si Dillards Lincoln Mercury and he was not able to drive much longer and he wanted me to have this car.
It was a real beauty, black with all black interior, and he gave it to me and just wanted me to drive him back home in it so I did.
I enjoyed the car for a long time and ended up selling it as I was moving and had no way to keep it at the time.
