My very first drive ...

  1. Although the technical quality is NOT good ... I found this image yesterday and it almost brought tears to my eyes. It's the car I learned to drive in, c1966.

    It's a 1965 Ford Thunderbird Landau. Had a red leather interior. My Dad loved T-birds; this was #2 in a long line. His first was a '63 that I never liked. (It was pink with a lavender/purple-ish interior and a white vinyl top!! Yuck!!) He kept buying 'Birds well into the 80's.

    Had a lot of fun in this one ... license test (pass 1st time), proms, dates, my first kiss, etc!!;)

  4. I know what I was thinking at that age---it was f-stops, ISO and focal length :LOL:

  5. About all I had was access to a Polaroid (which was the original source for this scan).

    Of course, if you had seen my high school girlfriend .... perhaps you would have thought of something else!! :)  But, that's another, non-automotive, kind of discussion!!

  6. I was being most facetious above! I'm sure I did NOT know what all of that alphabet soup meant back then.
    Back on track, that is a very nice color--and much better than, gulp, pink!
