I really do love my Falcon Wagon. She shows you you don’t have to spend a fortune to own a classic car that you can show and enjoy. “Bessie” is not perfect, but she is very charming and people love her.
My husband and I own two MINI Coopers (same year, same color that we bought new, before we ever new each other) but sometimes you need to haul something larger than a MINI will hold. We thought about getting a used SUV of some sort and realized for the same amount of money we could actually get a classic car.
Bessie is a “mild custom” that I’ve owned since Spring of 2009. We’ve had a lot of work done since to make it a nice driver. New tires, suspension and brake parts etc. She has just a little over 50K miles currently. The engine is a 170 6 with a Fordomatic 2 speed.
I have a lot of fun taking her to shows and have won a few awards.
