    Exclamation 1962 Ford Falcon

    Picked that as the #1 POS car in my life.

    In retrospect though, after many decades now, perhaps it wasn't so bad...simple, reliable and got great gas mileage.

    Low body line with high roof line - Good! Minimal pillars maximize driver's view - Good!
    Normal size wheels and tires - Good! Real fenders - Good! Curb weight around 2200/
    2300 lbs - Good! Current value in excellent condition circa $12900 (Hagertys) - Yeah

    Greetings.

    I suddenly find myself forum-less so I figured it was long past time to warm this account up.

    Yup, and it's not just middle aged nostalgia, it really wasn't a bad car, looking back at things.

    Column shift three speed and vacuum operated wipers are just a couple of things that would befuddle a modern "driver".

    Almost as simple, light, and economical as my 1958 Hillman Minx.
    Likely faster, and possibly more crash-resistant, but we didn't worry about how cars crash back then.
