thanks !! Thank you thank you.

I should show you a picture of it when we first bought it.
We actually had a few people make fun of it. Which, by the way, wasn't very nice .....

But they don't make fun of it anymore ....

Yup - that was a nice dealership. And a very interesting ride - considering we had to keep the windows down 2". We couldn't open the doors with the trailer that we had. So I had to put it on the trailer with the top left open - then, climb out -
then close the top using the 2" space that we left.

On the way down there we had our GT on there. I had to ride inside of it because it kept on raining. Climbed in - closed the window and went for a ride in a GT on the back of a trailer! (We traded the GT for the Cobra). Anyway - that was, well, interesting. BUT WORTH IT!

Don't worry Lisa - we try to make a trip down there at least once a year. I wish we would've met sooner !
I'll let ya know when were coming thru there again

No -

It was called "Regal Ford "

Do you know where that is? They had allot of 'Stangs ..

Nice dealership too!

They thought that was pretty neat that we travelled 700 (give or take a few) miles to get it!!

Only when we hit the mountains -
that's when it started to rain and we didn't want rain getting inside the GT -

so I reached in through the gap -
opened the convertible top -
climbed in -
shut the convertible top and the windows and rode for several hours. It was either that or stay underneath a bridge somewhere. Once you put that car on the trailer you cannot open the doors.

If it would've been a coupe - it wouldn't have worked.

It was really funny - I was trying to stay hidden so cops wouldn't see me. But I'd look out every now and then. Once, a boy in an Explorer saw me and he poked his Mom and told her there's somebody in that car !! Then I hid again. She probably told him he was seeing things.




Don't worry - the trailer that we have now has removeable fenders so that you can open the doors !
