I had a 1955 Ford car; it was the worst car that I ever had. Came with a whole array of problems - and most of them were still in the car when I sold that pile of junk cheap. Replaced it with a 1962 Chrysler with a push-button transmission that was much better than the Ford. Wonder when they'll bring back push-button transmissions as "a new idea"?

still think the best car i ever owned was a 57 ford 2 door hardtop. and i still think it was one of the best looking fords ever made.mine had the old 6 banger in it and that thing just kept on going. drove it until it just rusted apart. I dont recall doing one thing major to it,but there wasnt a whole lot on them to tear up back then either.LOL

I had 2- 57 Ford 2-door hard tops. The first one was Gun Metal gray, and rusted pretty bad, and fixed pretty bad. This was in 63. Then got another one It was black, Cruiser fender skirts, flipper hubcaps. Seek and find radio. Red pleated interior. 312 4 barrel with dual glass packs. The engine had chrome air cleaner and valve covers. Also had a chrome nut cover on every bolt. A real head turner. The way I got my wife! :-) Vic

Push button starters are back in alot of brands.

For some reason I think the push button tranny is back ? I don't know if I heard something mentioned about it on motor week ?

Our late 90"s Topkick dump trucks with the Allison trans were push button.

Back in the day, I owned a '57 Mercury with a pushbutton transmission.

In 150,000 miles, that's the only thing on the car that gave me serious grief. And it only acted up once, but that was when I was on a trip, driving through Indianapolis in a snow storm. I had managed to get it into "Drive" back down the road a ways, and I pulled into the Lincoln Mercury dealer in Indianapolis at noon on a Saturday. All I could see was all the service people walking out for the weekend.

All I could do was get a motel room. They replaced the pushbutton unit on Monday and I was back on the road Tuesday morning.

Hopefully before too long the automakers will get really high-tech and get the push button starter moved to the floor.

I saw your handle on a post further up, and wondered if you were thinking of this guy, or it was just a coincidence. LOL

I recall my father telling about when his uncle bought a brand new 1915 Model T Ford. It was hand crank, as were all cars at the time.

In a bull session with some other men, my father's uncle commented, "The day will come when you just push a button and your engine will start".

The other guys laughed at him.
