Our first new car was a 1963 Mercury Comet. Mine was medium blue and white. I enjoyed it but Tony traded it in 18 months later for a 1964 Ford Fairlane 500 bright red with white trim. They were both neat cars and fun to drive. I have never driven slowly.
Great story, thanks for sharing it.
She sure can wheel that car! No question its keeping her young and active.
It's hysterical that she has to give service techs a diagram on how to maintain the car. Most of the doofuses that work on cars today have never seen anything that old. What? Lube the chassis? What are these metal bars underneath here?
Smart of her to buy parts with "lifetime" warranties. The companies bet that you'll trade or sell the car before you need to replace the shocks, etc. But Rachel, here, outsmarted them.
The interior looks sharp as well. Were those the air conditioning vents under the dash in the inside-the-car scenes?
It's that 'can do' attitude that's keeping her young. Great to see her living and enjoying her life.
Think of all the money she's saved compared to all of us chumps buying new cars every few years. Good for her.
