My first car was a 1955 Ford Failane that I purchased used in October 1958. I proposed marriage to my wife after I took her home in it on February 14th, 1959. We brought our first baby daughter was born on December 1st, 1960. I brought my wife and daughter home from the hospital in it on December 5, 1960.
The car had been a dealer demonstrater and in those days, demonstraters seemed to have been factory tweaked for performance. That one would go!
