My first car was a powder blue 1951 Ford Tudor that I bought in 1956 for $275.
I had earned the money caddying at the local country club. It was my pride and joy.
One day, on the way home from high school, I saw my sister and her girlfriend walking home.
I stopped to offer them a ride. They got in, my sister sat next to me and her friend Sue sat by the door.
I had never met Sue, so my sister introduced us. It was love at first site.
Unfortunately, being very young, Sue and I didn’t end up together.
But I never lost my love for that powder blue ‘51 Ford and those memories.
In 2008, I saw one just like it on-line and new I had to have it.
This one was a Fordor but it was so perfect I bought it anyway.
The first year I had it, it won first place in a local classic car show.
Here is a picture of the car and me driving into the show.
