My first car was a 1941 Ford Coupe. I first saw it in the yard of a house I went by on my way to work on an egg farm. I wasn’t old enough to own a car, or have a driver’s license, but I pursued my dream. I put $5.00 down and paid it off in 5 weeks. Making .40 cents per hour involves a lot of time to pay things off. My first Ford, brush painted, Maroon, used, cost $45 dollars.
Over the years I have owned many cars, even a few Corvettes, but most of my cars have been Fords. I found that the rap Fix Or Repair Daily is not true, but Fords have been a Favorite Over The Road for me.
Imagine how my interest perked the other day when I saw this letter to Henry Ford:
"I have drove fords exclusively when I could get away with one. It has got every other car skinned, and even if my business hasn't been strictly legal it don't hurt anything to tell you what a fine car you got in the V-8" Clyde Barrow.
Ford is reliable transportation, but you must know that even a Ford won’t take you to heaven. Only Jesus can and will do that. Acts 4:12, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
