I needed a car and was ready for my first new car. My Dad loved U.S. made models and liked Fords. He donned his Ford hat and off we went.
It was the time of year then the last of the ’77’s were in stock and the first of the ‘78 models were also in. I was presented with 2 in stock an orange with black interior ‘78, and a white with red interior ‘77. I like red and white, my dad negotiated and I signed the papers! I kept it for 12 years.
