The 1 that got away

What was the one Ford you got rid of yet wish you never did ? Mine was a 59 F 100 SWB with a built 312 out of a t bird four speed and 4:10 gears it was a blast and you just never see another when cruising. I got rid of it for some party money back in the day, not my brightest moment I admmit. So lets have it what did you once have that you'd still like to have?

Mine wasnt a Ford, but I really miss my 65 Plymouth Fury. Even though if I still had it, if would just be collecting dust due to gas prices.

Not a Ford.

70 AAR Cuda, 340 six pak car, A833np, rally pac guages.

I came home from work one day and it was not there...Asked my mom WTF is my car, oh some guy gave me $300 for it.....That was 1982 and i learned an important lesson. Dont let your mom buy you a car, and dont buy a new one and let the Cuda sit.....

I still have evil feelings..............

A 1967 Mercury Cougar. (almost identical to a Mustang). V8, 289, 3 speed on the floor, fun and fast. Loved the flip open/closed headlights and blinking side-to-side tail lights.

I also had a 72 mach one with a 351 cj and a four speed. I traded that one for a 66 gto project that turned out to be stolen so I got boned on that one.
