First Ford

By Ken E.

I will never forget my first Ford it was a 1975 Ford Torino. I payed a wopping $150 for it out of my own pocket back in 1986 I was 17 and in love. It belonged to a little old lady who had hit a deer and parked it. It had only 65.000 miles on it. Under the hood was a 351 Windsor backed by a FMX transmission. I put a new radiator and grill in it and drove her home with a big grin on my face. My dad was worried he didn't want me to have a car with a big V8 in it and I didn't let him down because it was also the car I got my first speeding ticket with. LOL
