About “Rancho”

Since the Mustang had to go I had my eyes on a 72 Ranchero W/Hood Scoop. There weren't any 72's around with a hood scoop, so a 73 was it. I got a call at 2 o'clock
in the AM from the Maryland State Police asking if I owned a 71 Mach I. Since I was sleeping, I said yes I owned the car. They asked if knew it was stolen. Then, I told them I traded the car yesterday & they needed to contact Sheehy Ford in Marlow Heights, MD. In Maryland I couldn't transfer tags cause the Ranchero was considered a truck. I contacted Sheehy the next day & they said they recovered the car with a blown tranny, on the Beltway. (Tears)

I didn't keep the Ranchero long since my wife backed into a car at the neighborhood McDonalds. I didn't want damaged goods so I traded it in for my 72 H/O.
