1989, my first car, I was 21 years old. It was a maroon ‘79 Ford Granada. My husband was a mecanic at the time & bought it for $700.00. I loved that car! It was held together with baler twine, duct tape and coat hangers but it always got me home safe and sound. At one point it had a leak in the radiator and so I had to carry milk jugs full of water to use to fill it up every so often. Sometimes I’d forget to refill the milk jugs and I’d have to use lake or creek water. Today I love going to classic car shows, and am always disapointed that there are never any Grandas there! Can someone tell me why not? LOL.
