Driving by the ford dealer that shares my family name, I spied their snowplow sitting in the back lot. Wonder how many miles it has, since it does nothing but plow. Pretty rare color too, for a bronco.

I couldn't take it any longer....I jumped in and started cutting up my '57. I figured now was a good time, no cruises, no shows, no , well..whatever. Apparently the world and life as we know it, has stopped.
Anyways, I figured I have the '39 to use if we ever get a chance to go out, so it was the perfect time to take the cut off wheel and grinder to the Fairlane and bring it back to it's former glory.

Here's a few pics:






So much better....maybe I'll actually be able to sleep tonight for a change.

Back a million years ago, my dad had this '57 Ranch Wagon. As you know there is almost a "shelf" under the headlight, and that area became packed with mud and other road crap, and was a prime area for rust to form (remember I live in Michigan so we get snow and salt slush packed in there too), so, as I was small enough to fit in front of the tire, my dad handed me a screwdriver and told me to scrape the dried mud and rust flakes out from that "shelf". So, I had an after school chore for a couple of days. One of the days, when my dad came home from work, he told me that he heard rattle in the front, and told me to go look (it was more of a feel thing as I didn't have a light to see under there). I had left the screwdriver in there! It was a prime place for an inner fender panel, but Ford just left that whole area open. Thanks, for the memories!

Thanks for sharing @Mikey350 , those Ranch wagons are very popular today, and yes, those "shelves" are notorious for causing the headlight fender extension to rot out.

I made a little more progress today...





The best part is I won't have to look at these anymore, a friend in Austria wants them for his '57. I welded the cut out pieces back in and reassembled them for him.
I don't know how to say Adios in German....

The ultra rare F150 4 door ELECTRIC truck!!! Super not compact for those electric car parking stalls where one can block an entire parking isle with a single truck.

Have passed by that Edsel Dozer many times. Santa Rosa, New Mexico. Just drove by it last Sunday! It's on the I40 business loop in front of the car museum, across the street from Bozo's garage and hot rod shop.Yeah, I did another roadtrip...1002 miles....big loop around New Mexico (in my 57)

Very cool! I always thought 72 was a great looking year. The grille opening was unique, imo almost reminiscent of a 60s era indy car.

totally now that you mention it. Between the torino and the bronco it's quite apparent we're a ford family haha
