'71 Ford Pinto for me...
'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...
'78 Chevy Monza

Back then I found better things to enjoy on the beach.
You could have turned that one into my garage and never heard a complaint.
I usually brought my scenery with me just in case.
Mine was a '57 Chevy DelRay 210. Great car.
I had a67 Rambler Rebel, 232 six cylinder & 3 on the tree. No AC, power brakes with arm strong power steering. Was built like a tank.
I wouldn't mind having that convertible in my driveway...
Sweet cruisin' car!
Ti's that season. At least in some parts. Wouldn't you really rather have a.........Buick?
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.
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.
