I have a couple but the 1966 Mustang convertible that was parked along our favorite watering hole in Carmel (Vesuvio) is one of them.  Lovingly restored. I masked over the license plate to protect the owner.  Some of my other favs , are...no wait, what does everyone else like and want?

    that is a very nice vehicle.  My first and second cars were both Falcons, 1961 and then a 1963 convertible.  They were both  great cars and carried me, my cooler, and my drunk buddies a lot of miles.

      My first car was a 63 ford Galaxie 500 convertible that I totaled on the PA turnpike by hitting the trailer of an 18 wheeler!  But then the truk driver was cited and I replaced it with a 66 Ford hardtop coupe.

          Only thing that saved me was that the car was all steel and it hit on the passenger side, not the drivers.

            did you swerve to miss?  What time of the day was it?

    anadyr,

     

    My first, and memorable car, a 1957 Ford, paid $250, and drove the car for thousands of wonderful miles! (NO pictures)

    A great ride was taking my 90 year old Father in law for a ride in my Twin Turbo Cab, Porsche with my Brother and Sister in Law's.  It was a Fall day, and to drive around and visit wineries and see the Mississippi, was memorable.
