Hi, has anyone 57-58 Ford car in Journal? I couldn't find a way to search there. Or anywhere else, with pics and info preferably?

Basically I am a Chevy guy, but back, way back I had a '57 Ford Fairlane like this one and the stance was about the same as this. All black, tuck and rolled interior, Cragars all around, 312 T-Bird motor, and not an ounce of bondo anywhere. Also the front bumper was removed and the '57 is one car that actually looks good with no bumper. I had the motor pulled and was doing some engine work on it. I went to Kentucky over the weekend and came back and the car was literally destroyed. Someone had taken a razor blade to all the seats, busted every single piece of glass out, stole the wheels, etc. :drunk: :drunk: :spank: :pain: :boxing: I never could prove who did it although I had a real good idea. Bad thing was...no insurance to cover it. Man I miss that car. And it was probably one of the best Fords out of many I ever owned.

Had to get in my WayBack Machine to dig these out. This is the '57 I had in high school (1965-67). It had a 312 Thunderbird, rolled and pleated interior, Honduras Maroon paint job, tube grill, and raked about 3" in the front - although in the first pic it had been restored to normal ride height. Also a second shot from before the paint job (sorry for b&w pics - these come from way before the days of digital and cheap color photography).

Actually, 1957 was the only year that Ford outsold Chevy....Looking at those cars you can see why........Much better looking car.
