My First Car ‘61 Falcon

RIcky Ranger

Recommended Posts

Betsy was her name. She was loving maintained by a retired mechanic who lived next door to our family. She was a four door and had a three on the tree tranny. My mom bought her for me for $200 when I was 16 because she didn’t want me walking home at 11pm after I got off work.  That car so beautifully simple. I remember standing inside the engine bay as I changed out the cork head gasket. She was very forgiving and highly dependable. When I joined the navy, Betsy was passed along to a family friend. Gone but not forgotten.
