My Car - Snapshot!



June 2001

Welcome to the SNAPSHOT!!!!! section. Here, I will post new pictures of my car as I progress in my Ford Falcon restoration, with big plans for the future..........

Well, the time has finally come.  This poor car has been ravaged by Chicago weather, and I was planning on quickly fixing up the car and selling it, since I have another 65 Hardtop 'desert car' with a Mustang II front suspension.

A little soul searching found me remembering a lot of good times in this car, and its amazing how a car can take on a life of its own.  To add, this car would be great 'practice' for the other 65 Falcon.  So, this car will have new life breathed into it....

I have decided to restore the car completely: A lot of new metal is needed, new paint, new body parts, and new accessories.  The start of any restoration is to tear the car down as far as you can, then begin rebuilding.  Thanks to a lot of friends like Mark Dinzebach and folks on the tffn, this car 'will be something to be proud of'.

In this section, I hope to chronicle the restoration process.  Hope you enjoy the show, and email me if you have any ideas!

Mike in Chicago
