    '55 Ford Victoria. I slipped in a 332 police interceptor. 2 1/2 years later it was turned into a dirt track racer.

    1968 Toyota Corona. I installed an 8track with speakers in the back deck behind the rear seat. At the beach I would pop the truck so we could listen to music coming out there.

    I had it repainted at some point so the trim paint changed a little.

    That almost was my first car. My uncle Clem had one for a long time before he upgraded to a 1990 Isuzu Trooper (which I eventually inherited from my Dad, interestingly) - which was my first 4x4 and which hooked me on four-wheel drive. Kinda necessary in winter up here...

    I've had a '58, '61, '63' & '65. Then went to Doge. That's a '55 with a '55 Ford in background. And it could be Richfield, Wisconsin.

    Now that's a real car with real metal.

    And a pair of Dagmars - albeit modest ones - to complete the look.;)

    My Dad's first car was a '56 Plymouth Savoy with the classic two-tone blue-and-white paint job. I can remember a few times I sat in the back seat when we went on drives around town. I had to stand up on the back seat to see out the window - much to the irritation of Mom and Dad.

    He then got a '65 Savoy, dark blue. I liked that one and I clearly remember when we went to get it at a dealer in Montreal - and how many cars had to be moved to squeeze that baby out of there. It was one of those small lots shoehorned between two buildings.

    I guess it could be. However Richfield was a gasoline brand that eventually merged with Atlantic to form ARCO (Atlantic Richfield Company).

    That looks like a '34 Ford rumble seat convertible in the foreground. We had one that I loved. Sadly, when I was 12, Dad sold it to buy a '47 Willys Jeep. I felt he was being selfish. The Jeep had a plow so he could reach the house during winter. But I wanted to learn to drive with the convertible. I learned to drive with the Jeep instead. :rolleyes:

    Turbine Drive? You used to try to operate nailheads and Dynaslush?

    Thank God. Enlightenment really improves the quality of life.

    That's a '55 Pontiac in the background. A Star Chief.

    '35. But yes. Your "Ford" is actually a Ford.
