49 years and counting

Well, we did it. Me and my 64 Galaxie are officially one year away from the magic "50 year ownership" mark.

Quiet year. Bought new tires, changed oil, and attended car shows. Hit the 219,294 mileage mark. 220K is a definite maybe.

No trophies (that's fine with me), but the old Gal still draws her share of lookers. And, at this stage, that's what it's all about.

These are old links, but if anyone's interested, here they are:

Only 365 days to go!

Happy New Year!

Your car looks beautiful. I have a distinct fondness for that year. I had (2) white '66 country squires and a 70 galaxie... some of my favorite cars.

The car is loved by its owner and vice versa. Looks brand new.

That's awesome. You should plan something special for that 50th.

Built in 63, and so was I. I want to own a car of that era someday. Love the interior. Congrats!

In 1969, I was looking for a car for my wife. A Ford co-worker, Tommy L, told me about a Galaxie convert for sale. I bought it.

Yesterday, at a local HOT car show, a guy walks up to me and says "you still have it, don't you?"

It was Tommy L. Hadn't seen him since the early 70's, but he recognized the car and my name on the show info sheet.

I love those stories. Really makes it hit home when you see those folks.

I was at a show with the '63 a few weeks ago and ran into a guy that sold me a trans for it like 20 years ago. Similar story, "you still have it".

Reminders of more good times.
