My First Ford
OCT
16

As a Teenager growing up in Southern Maryland my favorite sport was NASCAR. My Favorite car, of course was the Ford Galaxie 500. With the crossed Flag Decals, its 429 CI engine, I marveled at the winning percentage of such drivers like Jr. Johnston and Bill Elliott.

So, of course I had to have one. Although the introduction of the Mustang in 1964 set my mind in a different direction, my first Car actually ended up being a black 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 Xl coupe, with black bucket seats a 390 CI engine and 4 on the floor. Unfortunately Uncle Sam called me to duty and I had to sell it. But today, in my garage sits a reminder. This White 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL convertible shown in the picture submitted. Ah! The good old days….

Gilbert C Being from the UK my first Ford was the Iconic Cortina 1600E, think they did export it to the states, sadly no photos remain but it was a bute ! Had some performance RS fords after that but in the 80's and 90's Ford started churning out some awful cars and I went to VW/Audi. Just went to the Ford dealer today and the new Focus could tempt me back

In the world of cars the mustang is my absolute favorite. But there is one thing that this car lacks most of all and that is performance handling. take a look at european cars compared to them we are in the stone ages yes i know the new mustang is wider and lowered also it has independent suspention all four tires, we will wait to see what it can do. Also we have a 5L engine that stock puts out around 450 HP really? how is it smaller engines can dut out the same? what i am trying to say is the mustang is an iconic car and when it first came out it was top of the line, throught the years of mustangs life it has fallen into a rut of terrible design untill the you have the 2005 or newer model. but performance on the track has still been lacking if ford wants to keep up in the world they need to have a faster, lighter and well it has already got the looks down but come on please for the pride of our country put money aside and make something amazing that can show the world what America can make out of its own garage! Thank you
