My 35+ Year Love Story With Ford

My Love Story with Ford started in 1976 when at the age of 16 I bought my first car, a 1967, Yellow Ford Mustang. I had my first official date in my 67 Mustang, went to my first Prom in it, installed a Boss 302 motor in it, and went off to college in it. I then sold it while still in college to continue my education.

My next car was a used 1976 Ford LTD with power everything. I used it as our Fraternity Cruiser. We would crusie the Sororities, take long road trips, and I even used it as a make shift ambulance once with it\’s bench seat in the back.

I have many more love stories with each of my Ford\’s listed below. More on that another time.
