I got the 1950 Ford when I was only 15 years old in 1952, I know, old as dirt. I had the only convertible in my part of the world at that time so it was very popular. In 2001 I kept thinking about that car so I finally talked myself into looking for one that I could restore. I did find one that was a basket case but that did not deter me. By the end of 2002 the car had went through its metimorphis to the beaty that it is today.
