I was 9 when my mom bought her first car, a brand new 1967 Ford Falcon, 170 CI straight six with three-on-a-tree shifting, AM radio, vinyl floor mats and a spare tire. $1,950.00 and some small change out the door. Only ONE WEEK after learning how to drive, she loaded my sister and me into the car, and we took off on a road trip to Colorado. We took Route 66 most of the way. I remember the wooden slingshot, the Indian drum, the wooden snake, and other things she bought for me from Stuckey's. Howard Johnsons, Motel 6 when it really WAS $6.95 per night for a room, The AAA TripTIK, $4.50 to fill up the tank, no A/C ... ahh the memories!
