Memories Are Made Of This.

By Jon L.

Soph. in high school circa 1958 and I worked in a Ford Dealership after school and on Sat. for extra money. The owner had a 54 Ford, kind of a maroon color with cream colored top. It only had 5000 mi on the little v-8, three speed w/overdrive and I wanted it in the worst way. Saved enough to buy it for $400 and it might be the best I ever owned. It would go like crazy (no speed limit in MT) and get over 30 mpg easy. I finally gave it up for a 57 Ford [white] retractable hard top, which after a time was traded for a 1965 1/2 Mustang 2+2 [in tropical turquoise] . Now there is three Ford's in a row that I would dearly love to have back. What memories that took me from high school through college and a few girl friends.
