It was 1973 when I saw this 57 Ford parked in a barnyard, covered with pigeon dung and faded paint. The farmer said I could have it for $50.00 dollars. Several years past before he saw the car again at his 90th birthday. He couldn't believe I still had the car and it looked so good. Found out that his daughter lost her virginity in the back seat of that car way back when she was much younger, of course. It was kind of embarrasing to her when her husband told everyone. I told everyone it had new upholstry and was still not broken in at that time.
