I'm a fan of it Jeff, I've always liked Fairlanes and Comets of those years. Also, the story reminded me of myself in high school as I spent all my puny part-time earnings on fixing up my '67 Ranchero.
I've got a Comet of my own too; a '64 Caliente Convertible. Been in the family a long time, but it's far from as nice as yours.

My Comet? Pure junk, lol.
Seriously, it's a major project that has been backburnered for over 30 years. Who knows, maybe it'll show in the mag one day- but don't hold your breath!

Ok! I always loved the style of the 64s. I can't wait to see your car once you get it restored. By the way, do you know where I would be able to get a poster size of my car that was published in PHR!
