New Year, new car

So we did get a new car -- and on New Year's Eve.

I don't remember it, and have to stretch my mind to even believe it. We weren't ones to swap cars every few years. Yes, we used the 1950 a lot in two years (especially the past six months). But I know we also had a 1955 Chevy. (I inherited it as my car in 1962.) So there isn't much room for a '51 or '52 car. I don't understand.
