My First Car Was A Ford

During the Blizzard of '77 in Buffalo, NY, I spent time searching the classified ads for a car. One in particular stood out. 1971 Ford Galaxie 500 for sale $700.00. About a week after the snow cleared I called the number in the ad to see if the car was still available. It was. The owner drove it over to my dormatory for me to take a look at it. I didn't know what I was looking for in a car. I started. I could drive it. The lights worked. The brake worked. I was sold. I had to wait for the title to come in the mail. It turned out the owner bought it in a auction for 25 buck and fixed it up a bit. After I got the car registered, I took it for inspection. I cost me $400.00 to get it safe enough to drive. And I drove it a lot. It made the trip from Buffalo to New York and back more than a dozen times. And it real seem to like moving fast. I really like that car. Now it's time for a new one.
