    Cousin Donnie bought a new 66 Cobra....

    He lived in Mckenzie, a 7 dog town 20 miles east of Bismarck. The town had a gas station and a bar, which was owned by Dons dad. my unkl Al was a jovial guy, who always had a smile on his face. Our family would always go out there for Thanksgiving and they would come over every year for Christmas Dinner.
    .....Somehow Donnie saved up enough money and probably with a loan from his dad, bought a nice combine. While the rest of us kids were working at the gas station or grocery store for a buck an hour, he was SUPPOSEDLY making 175 bucks a day combining throughout the state. He saved 6600 dollars and went down to the Ford dealership in Bismarck to buy a new 66 Cobra. They didn't have a clue what he was talking about, so he went to the Mandan dealership. They also didn't know what he was talking about and probably looking at this kid, blew him off. The next stop was at Hebron Ford, a little town west of Mandan. The manager there had to be shown the picture of the cobra and finally did place the order. A few months later and with snow on the ground, the car came in and the manager called Donnie to pick up the car. "Did you know that car doesn't have a top on it"?? The manager thought Donnie was nuts.
    .....A few months later, Donnie raced a 442 and humiliated the guy. The 442 owner was so impressed, that he said that he had to have the Cobra. A deal was made and Donnie walked away with 7500 bucks and a smile on his face....
