"WE LOVE OUR CAR BECAUSE ... this is a car we found in a farmer's barn in Sedro-Woolley that had been there for many years. When we got it, it used about a quart of oil in 100 miles so the engine was rebuilt and we love driving it on nice days. The bright yellow T-Bird is always easy to find in a parking lot."
