1969 Ford Falcon Futura

My grandpa had always driven these old Ford Falcons for as long as I could remember. This one I got from my uncle when he was done with it. It was somewhat beat-up when I got it. Same friend who painted my bike agreed to trade again for an awesome "burgundy metallic pearl" paint job.

Another friend had an upholstery shop and wanted a trade deal too. It was starting to look very nice and not so embarrassing. Too bad I didn't know a guy with an engine shop. Good ol' reliable 351 with a not so reliable distributor. I used this car to commute to a new job 35 miles away. It got up and went. I'd get into the fast lane and just cruise along at 80-85. The only real problem was stopping. You had to push both feet on the pedal and pull on the steering wheel to come sliding to a slow stop. An intoxicated woman with a child in her minivan slammed into me on the road and took off. I had to chase her for several miles, honking and waving at all the cops I passed. Eventually, I sued her insurance company and got enough money for a newer or nicer car. I sold the smashed car to a friend of a friend who wanted the trailer hitch.

The unreal is more powerful than the real.... Because it's only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. ~Chuck Palahniuk
