    Can't remember if I posted my new winter beater.

    I was told they weren't reproduced. I hope it's the case. That's for the next guy, anyway. I'm selling this once my Falcon is done.

    Fantastic car! I love my old VW Bug, but I really want a Falcon so much!

    If you can live with a sedan rather than a convertible, they're really quite affordable, too.

    I remember 'back in the day' they weren't much cared for in my hometown in Southern Ohio. You saw more Dodge Darts and Plymouth Valiants.....but ironically I'm now seeing more old Falcons at shows and for sale here in Tennessee, and absolutely NO Darts or Valiants anywhere!

    Regards! Michaelson

    My Grandparents had a Falcon. I had a Dart up until recently. Nice little car, but not the most comfortable for a guy of my stature.
     
  12. They beat the Darts and Valiants into the ground and abandoned them. They were the disposable car of the 60s-70s around here. :p My friend had one in high school and we beat that thing up pretty good. lol lol I am sure it is in a scrap yard somewhere or, worse yet, maybe part of some Honda somewhere. :p
     
  13. Your beloved Dart. :p

  15. Yeah but that is like saying a AMC Gremlin is better than a mini---same difference, different times. :p

    The Dart had far more style than a Gremlin. Sorry if it isn't up to your standards, but it was a good little car, regardless.

     
  17. :rofl: Up to my standards. lol lol Isn't up to the world's standards. :p

    Wrong James....
    Third world standards, even then people usually choose to walk.
    James, Darts and Valiants were NOT abandoned!
    They were made into stainless steel knives and forks. :D

    My bf Tom and I just bought an original, unrestored 1941 Pontiac Deluxe Torpedo Business Coupe. Pics to follow. Over time we'll be restoring it, it drives well. Otherwise what we have to do/find is cosmetic. When it was repainted several years ago, it was done in a different color than it was originally. When we are at the point of repainting, I'd like to replicate the original color, which is Marlboro Blue.

    Pics to follow.
