  • 1959 Lincoln Mercury Wagon

    My first driving experience was in a 1959

    Lincoln Mercury Station Wagon. When I

    was 13, my dad would send me to the store

    to get milk and some cigars for him. Was

    lucky no one caught me. But he knew I had

    been around cars since I was 6 years old.

    (We were a racing family from Michigan.

    Around the tracks and pits all the time.)

    And I used to pretend driving an old 1951

    Hudson we had in our front yard, along

    with a 1962 Hillman.

    Took my first driving test in the ‘beast’. Got

    a 100 % on both the written and the driving

    tests (and in those days this included

    parallel parking !). They even put a placque

    on the DrivoTrainer for me.

    A small side note…Got my first ticket the

    same day I got my license. Pulled out of a

    parking lot at dusk and as I did I turned on

    my lights. Cop said I should have turned on

    the lights sooner.

    Bummer.

  • 1978 Mercury Cougar XR7, Fully Loaded

    Fantastic, Beautiful Car

    Had the big 390 engine,

    Sun roof, full power

    everywhere, burgundy

    color. I bought this from

    my father and gave it to

    my sister-in-law for her

    first real car. That lasted

    for a few months. She

    seized it up and it sat

    for a couple of years. Finally

    towed away.
