No Back Seat

By Don M.

My Dad was always a car buff. His first Ford was a business coupe, and had NO back seat. I guess this was made for salesmen to be able to load up the back with stuff! He took me along to a junk yard. I was about 10 years old. I never saw junked cars piled up like THAT before. He found the correct size to fill the space with a seat....not from a Ford, I suspect...I know this because it was never really secured properly. I was the one riding in the back and with every quick stop that seat would move forward a bit! I always loved that car with the bullet tail lights, black and white color scheme and the V8 symbols on the glove box door side fenders and hood and trunk! Since then he had several Fords. Now I am the proud owner of my dream car, a 1957 Ford Thunderbird and a 2001 Ford Escape.
