Default Why did I sell it

It'* been like 18 years sense I sold it, and I still regret it. It was my first new car. I miss it so. But I do plan to get another one for a project car.

This was when I first came home with it.

Mine was a '64 Falcon Sprint, then a '57 Belair, then a '64 Catalina Cpe, then a '64 XL, then........ I drank alot in High School. Pains me to think of the twisted up nice cars I left in the wake of that.

I was dating a girl that had a 64 Falcon. nice car to work on, nothing much under the hood other then a engine. She ran it under a train that was going 60mph. The car did not fare well, neither did she.

Ya, a lightweight box. Mine had the factory 4 spd package with the 260 V8 with tach in the dash. Not bad for a grocery getter. I slid in a corner towards a small creek canyon, over corrected into a rock formation. Hit it so hard the radio busted out of its mounts and hung towards the floor by the wiring. Luckily I only had a GF passenger, we saw it coming and were braced pretty good. Car was a total demo.

Brendas car was a total loss as well. Everything from the windshield forward was gone. She survived, but just. Was the worst damage I have even seen in a car and still had a surviver.

Only vehicle I've owned that I regret getting rid of. It'* the only vehicle besides the Bonne that I put a lot of money and time into.

That'* not my first car. I don't have a picture of my first car because I didn't own a digital camera or a scanner.
