.............to this hobby. Only then she didn't know it.

The time is January 1962. I had met her in 1961. I got called to Ft Lewis, WA for the Berlin Crisis. She got to drive her uncles fairly new Simplicity. Look at the paint on the muffler and the shine on the hood. I now remember why she had to learn to drive and plow. It was to dig out her 'prized' possesion, her 1960 Plymouth Valiant. After she got that dug out, there was about 70' of driveway to do.

I used to live in the country, then they built a housing developement around my farm. Why is it that now I'm the odd ball and every one else is trecking down the road on their green and yellow shiny things? Society doesnt appreciate history as much as vanity apparently.BUT IM NOT BUDGIN GAL DANG IT!!! I'll run my 30+ year old tractors against theirs untill they're sending em to the repair shop! Love the old pics AND the fact that THAT Simplicity is more than likely STILL out there!!!!!

I hung out with no one from Clark county. As far as the Ford, with or without a continental kit.

I was in the USAF due for discharge Jan. 8, 1962 when JFK extended my tour of duty for an additional 12 months because of the Berlin Crisis. The extension was later lifted and I got out May 28, 1962. It all turned out for the best as my wife and I were blessed ?????????? with twin boys nov. 5, 1961. OH for the memories!!!!!!!!!!!
