Sally Hits the Road


It's eighty degrees, the sun is shining, and there's a light breeze. It's time to get her out of the barn and take a ride. Let's start her up....where would you like to go?


Hop in...top down or up? Which would you prefer?

Don't burn your fanny on those black vinyl seats...they get purty hot when the top's down..and, I should warn you....no air conditioning!
Your ride today was made by Ford, old Henry's bunch...they've got a big old place down in Dearborn, see the nameplate there?



Your seatbelts are down low and behind your seat...no shoulder straps in this ride!



Crank your window down, there's no power controls in this baby for that!


(Remember when speedometers were actually ROUND? And there were numbers, not a digital readout, and switches were actually a switch, and not a button with a little light behind it? At night you had to remember where each switch was located because they weren't all lit up!)


And what would you like to listen to on that old radio? How about OLDIES?!
Oh yeah! I think my favorite old song by the Eagles is on right now...
"Take it Easy"...let's sing along!



We may have to stop to top off the tank...

Let's go...we got yard sales callin' our name, and after that...



We'll pull in and order under the awning a burger or a coney dog at the A & W and top it off with a ROOT BEER FLOAT in a frosted mug, how's that sound??

Perfect...?

If I really could do this with you, we'd have SO MUCH FUN!

P.S. I LOVE The Eagles. That song is a classic, for sure!

My hubby has the Eagles CD's in his car which is NOT a classic beauty like yours. I had forgotten about cranking windows up or down. Nice ride!

Oh yeah....I'm all over this!!! I'm a gearhead at heart and I'm really wishing I still had that 1970 Chevelle. I'll meet you at the A & W for a root beer float. It's a date! by the way, thanks for the link to the tea parties. The Farmer and I plan to attend.

OH MY GOODNESS! She's a beauty!!! I will someday get my mitts on a 1966 Red Mustang Fastback.
Growin' up we had a '68 Mustang coupe in teal. We all piled into it and traveled to Connecticut many a summers. :> )
Man, they don't make muscle cars like they used to.
Thanks for sharin' her with us!

Oh yeah, that would be a blast. I've been to Michigan but I was just a baby so I don't remember it. I haven't added it to my map of states I've been to. Love your pony!!!

I call Shotgun!! Just let me grab my scarf (I could totally rock the Doris Day look!) When I was sweet 16, two of my FAVORITE boys drove vintage Mustangs. They were brothers and one of them had the fast back. I went on my first official date in the fast back...we saw "Love at First Bite", and when he brought me home, the passenger door stuck shut and he couldn't open it. Heehe, Tom was SUCH a doll! That was about 30 years ago, yikes!! Wish I would have kissed him that night!

Ahhhhhh..........nothing quite like the vintage Mustang, is there? At one time I had an aqua 67 fastback, my sister had a white 66 convertible and my brother-in-law had a burgandy 66 coupe. We loved having them all parked together.....even then....Oh how I miss those days!

Blessings.........and have fun at the sales!

Blessings,

Oh wow! Talk about memories. My first car was a 64 Mustang. Loved it to pieces! There will never be a ride as sweet as a 'stang.
