Ford Raising

My story begins when I was just a small elementary student, and my family and I lived in a small eastern town, which just happened to be located above the FORD garage. My friends and I mostly would hang around the garage every day after school, and witness all these folks purchasing, having their cars serviced by the garage. We would also witness every delivery of FORD automobiles probably from the early 1950 through the middle sixtys. Every year a new model would be delivered late at night, at which time me and my buddies would watch them take the new models off the trucks and try to hide them in a lower level garage under the main garage. I can still see the 1957 year FORD thunderbird delivered that evening it was beautiful, with the white exterior and red interior, was well as the port holes in the top. This has stuck in my mind for years, and as well as my two brothers would purchase nothing but FORD automobiles, which my oldest brother, purchased three different fifities crown vics, what a beautiful machine. Then later in life when I could afford cars, purchasing my own seventies LTD, and FORD seventies THUNDERBIRDS, of which I had two. Then came marriage and the best car ever purchased, of which I still own today, my Foxy lady 1986 FORD Mustang GT, 5.0.
