My father had several used Fords as I grew up. I even learned to drive on a 1948 Ford Super Delux 8. Took my drivers exam in a 1960 Falcon station wagon; purchased my first new car, 1970 Ford Maverick (bright yellow, black plaid seats); moved up to a Torino in 1972; purchased 3 Taurus during the late 80’s through the mid 90’s.
Bought my crown jewel of Fords in 2005 when I retired. A new Mustang. Still have it today and drive lt on section of The Mother Road, yes Route 66. Still have less than 46,000 miles on it. Will probably hand it doen to kids or grand kids.
