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
Some of my automobile modeling. You'll probably notice most of it is Fords. That's because I've been a
Ford enthusiast long before 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.

July '03 I bought  new loaded Acura CL Type S, 6
speed to replace the T-Bird. Nice car, lots of power.
Closest thing I could find to the '88 Turbo Coupe but it
didn't ride as nice or handle as good as the
T-Bird.........and I miss looking down that long hood.
Traded it in Aug. 2012 with 17,000 miles on it to get my
next toy.
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.  What a blast to drive! A FORD guy
again and have a long hood to look down again!!!
