50s-Newsreel - 5th Wheel Car for Parallel Parking ~ Contributor Classmate Jim Hennen

Parallel parking was all we had in both Lead and Deadwood when we were learning to drive. The old '36 Ford wasn't as tough to park as Sandy's dad's '52 Buick. Neither one had power steering and Sandy still talks of trying to parallel park that car on Deadwood's narrow streets. When it was just her and her mom in the car they had to team up on the steering wheel to horse it into a tight spot. Must have been a sight for sore eyes . . . !
