My first car was a '57 Ford Country Sedan Sta wgn... Never really wanted another(tho wagons are now in vogue) and definitely not the next two that were '62 & '58 Ford 4dr... The '58 did have one redeeming virtue, was equipped with 352 interceptor(and, BTW power windows)... Fourth car was a '64 Galaxie 500 Fastback, 289 & three-on-tree that I converted to 390 4-speed, that one I'd like to have back... Fifth was a identical '64 but automatic, despised that car(soon sold it and started driving the 4-speed Galaxie again)... Number six is my Cobra Jet that I still have... Wouldn't trade it for all the aforementioned or next 25 combined(maybe one exception)... Somewhere in that bunch was '68 GTE Cougar with factory 427, that's the one I should have kept, some of those have sold for six figures...
