In '74 I bought a '67 Shelby GT-500, dual quad 428 and a C-6 automatic with 12,000 miles on it for
$1,600. It didn't take much to burn the tires off of it. This was my hobby car. Couldn't wait for the
summer car shows and cruisin'. The car is featured on the Automobile Quarterly "Striped
Lightning" poster and in Volume 16, Issue 8 of their publication. What a neat car. Turned heads
everywhere I took it. I sold the car in '88 for $13,000! Damn!

My first car was a
white '59 Ford
Galaxie, 352 V-8,
2 barrel and 2
speed
Ford-o-matic.
What a tank. Man
I used to beat the
crap out of it.
Blew it up one day.

Between the '63 and '85 I had a couple of family cars. A '67 Rambler station wagon, what a piece
of crap, and a '76 Maverick which turned into a rust bucket piece of crap real fast. I know, it's a
Ford. Definitely not one of their better ideas.

Next was a '63
Galaxie 500 XL,
390 V-8, 4
barrel and 3
speed automatic.
Another tank
but a good car.
Served me well
till I retired it to
the bone yard.
Some of my automobile modeling. You'll probably notice most of it is
Fords. That's because I've been a Ford enthusiast ever since I was old
enough to drive.
In '85 I bought a new Thunderbird
Turbo Coupe and in '88 I traded it in
and bought another Turbo Coupe.
Both great cars. I kept the '88 for 15
years. Sold it in '03 for $2,700 with
114,000 miles on it. You could drive
that car for 12 hours and never
knew you did. I still miss it.
That's what makes me a FORD man.

Bought a '03 Acura CL Type S to
replace the T-Bird. Bought it new
and now has a whopping 16,000 miles
on it. Nice car, lots of power. Closest
thing I could find to the '88 Turbo
Coupe but it doesn't ride as nice or
handle as good as the T-Bird.........and
I miss looking down that long hood.
After 24 years, I decided to get
back into the car hobby. Yes, in
my 60s. '70 Mach 1, 351C 4V, 4
Speed, 3.50 Traction Loc. 1 of 171
this color and 1 of 52 this
color/trim. Not a Shelby and not
the ride of the Turbo Coupe but
it's nice. Not perfect but I'll
probably get it there someday.  A
FORD guy again and have a long
hood to look down again!!!
