About “Mach I”

This was my 1st brand new car. Picked it up at Koons Ford in Falls Church, Va. No other
dealers in area wouldn't sell me 1 cause of my age. Back then 36 months was max on financing. The salesman convinced Koons Ford to Finance me for 37 months to keep payments resonable. I asked how I should break the car in , He told me to run the Piss out of it thats what it was made for. And that I did.
That evening my wife & I rode around showing our friends our new ride. Got into a race with a Corvette on the Capitol Beltway doing a 110 mph. What a thrill kicking his Butt. Speeding tickets & noise polution (squealing tires) took it's toll & had to get rid of it. Traded it in on a new 1973 Ranchero
