My first car was a 62 Mercury Comet, it had a 6 cyl. in it when I bought it, burned oil big time, I didn't care, it was my 1st car, I put chrome wheels on it and redid the interior, then when my brother parked his Mercury Meteior, cause it was rusting apart, I took his 289 Cobra engine out and put it in my Comet, man did that car come alive, only problem, it kept breaking leaf springs right and left, I could not afford traction bars, so when I would race someone, we would do a 10 mph kickdown, then it would be strong enough to hold, man I beat 302 Boss Mustangs, Z28s and about everything else that would want to race, well good things have to come to an end, one time we were racing, going about 80 or so, when a German Shepard dog ran out in front of me and of course I served to miss him and wrecked and totaled the car. I was beat up pretty bad and remember laying on the side of the road, when that damm dog came to me and started licking my face, I could not believe it, then he ran off into the woods. I never got a picture of that car, back then you didn't take many pictures like we do today. But I sure miss it. Rick.
