CC Outtakes: Automotive Curiosities of North Texas Summer 2021

Since moving to Fort Worth almost eight months ago, I’ve come across some cars that I’ve really wanted to write about. Unfortunately, since working from home, I don’t have as much time to indulge in this pastime making full write ups on cars difficult. Now, it’s finally time to let my random shots see the light of day for all of you to enjoy.

The car you see at the top of this page is a 1969 Falcon Futura sedan. I was lucky enough to catch up with the owner as we walked into the store. He informed me the Falcon was his latest project but he also had a 1969 Mustang Mach One that was his pride and joy.

Next is this 1976 Ford Maverick sedan that I was amazed to see. I once drove this exact same car while looking to replace my Rio many years ago. Seems like it’s little 200 I6 and a three speed manual have held up well!

The following few cars are from the back of an auto shop I stumbled upon while looking for a trash can. This 1965 Impala coupe looks nice, but I think it could use some different wheels. To each their own!

This 1967 Camaro reminds me of the sort I used to drive when working at the dealership.

This 1965 Chrysler is actually what caught my eye to start with and got me to walk over in the first place. Pretty neat paint job, with Rat Fink on the trunk to boot!

So, just a few interesting cars from my recent travels. Hopefully I’ll be seeing more, even as the weather here in Texas starts to get cooler.
