CC Outtake: That Won’t Buff Right Out

Lots of Fords this week, but at the grocery story yesterday afternoon, I ran into – no, not that way – this very pristine ’72 Ford, a Galaxie 500, no less. I first saw it from the other side, and wondered about the strap on the trunk. Here’s why: ouch; that hurts. Too bad, because this is one cherry old grandma’s car otherwise. Wait ’till you check out the interior.

Love that pattern! I remember it so well, during my days as a car jockey. I can just feel that subtle texture on my fingertips.

Yes, as jpc knows all too well, these are my all-time favorite Fords (not). But it hurts even me to see one end up like this. And how much would the insurance pay for one of these?
