    The GT40 and the Mustang....

    Nothing else ford has made is worth looking at, including their truck line. Brother Brucie was a Ford guy his whole life. A body and paint guy and later was the Yardmaster at Burlington Northern in Sheridan. He bought a 57 Ford Convertible in 59 and drove it for 40 years until he died. He also had a 49 Merc Convertible at the same time, while Brother Gare had a 50 Merc Convertible and i had a 51 Merc Convertible all at the same time. Brucie would turn over in his grave if he saw the junk ford was making these days....

    • The 3 of us had Merc Convertibles at the same time. The unfortunate thing about it was that their Mercs were totaled and parked on a hill overlooking the Heart River. Too many Black Label Beers took their toll on those two. I made frequent trips out there to scavenge parts. The last time i saw my 51 was in the back row of a car lot in Bismarck. It was the middle of winter the poor girl had her drivers window down, with an inch of snow on the seat. i could have bought it back for 100 bucks, which was 20 bucks more than i paid for it, but i had a light blue 62 Ford 406, 405 horse, tri-power, 4-speed, radio delete SWEETHEART waiting out on the street for me. Marilyn Monroe or Marjorie Main. Which one would you date??
