Wheels in the Grass

If you’re interested, you can see this 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 four-door sedan parked next to a repair garage in North Tonawanda. It’s been there for a while, wearing some old North Carolina plates. I learned to drive in a similar car, only not quite as fancy: the baser Galaxie series with less chrome, little hub caps, six-cylinder with three-on-the-tree, … no radio! Ugh! The 500 four-door was the year’s most popular full-sized Ford, with 205,722 being produced at a starting list price of $2,613. Geez, Dad, that’s only $106 more than that plain old beige thing you bought — what were you thinking!!??
