In Which We Buy a Car

T-Bird on a trailer
On the trailer in Dixon

When the front axle broke on my late-model Saab, I thought to myself, “Sheesh, with major failures like that, I could be driving something with a little flair.

So, I sold the Saab and went shopping. A hundred miles away, I found a ’64 T-Bird that had been well-loved, but a little ignored in the last few years.

She’s got great paint, a pretty fresh motor and solid front end. But, there is work to be done.
