I don't think that many of our younger members may even know what a Falcon looks like.

I owned 4 Falcons back in the day. They were a great car! But I don't think you could get them going fast enough to get that kind of elevation  by dropping them down a mine shaft?

 

But I have to admit when working on modern electronic cars I have often wished I could buy a brand new Falcon ( they were simple as a tractor).

I had a 1964 Falcon Futura when I was in high school.

Now that I think about it, I was driving a newer vehicle back then than now! Now I am depressed.........

Used to be a Parts guy and racer in Clinton, WI that had a 55 Chevy truck in tree at his place. Real nice one too. Pix were all over the place on it. Same guy had a Blown Big Block chevy for a Mailbox too. Parts disappeared off that all the time, heh! His kid in last few years has made up Hot Rod Lawnmowing machines that look neat, don't really function. I've seen those offered on epay at times.  This is fella that designed the "Cross-Over" distributor for Chevs that kept wires on each side of it, not laying tangled accross it. "Cross-Fire"  maybe??  Never did hear how he actually got the truck UP there and not sure still there or not.

:ditto:   Probably jumped up there to get out of the chevy's way and then didn't have enough power to get down.

Why is the steering column in the back seat?

He crashed into the 4 week old sapling and it did that much damage.

I had a 64 Galaxy  . Only one  set of RR  grade crossing could make it fly . It was a comfortable tank .

 

 

   Watch out for flying fleas when this tree has to cut down .  Mice probably living in it .

The pic in this thread could be considered to be  a ride home for the aliens . Only if the thing in the air still works , old guys .       The only thing needed now is some Elvis music .
