William L 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 2dr Convertible

Prom Night in the Rain

In May 1963, I was driving my 1959 Ford Sunliner convertible with the top down on prom night.

It was pouring rain. There were six of us in the vehicle.

I lost control and spun around three times in front of a cop.

The cop asked what I was doing, and I told him our brakes failed.

He said, "Try letting off the gas."

He let us go, we put the top up and had a great night.
