Many blessings !

53 Years. Yesterday marks 53 years since my parents bought 6S289. The (2) Competition Press & AutoWeek key chains in the photo below were given to my parents when they bought 6S289 back in August 1967.
The fun with 6S289 keeps on going.

Oh - I was going to post this yesterday but it was overshadowed by a more important event...the birth of my first grandchild. YES!



Thanks, Mark


Thanks. Many Blessings to you as well.

I picked up my Christmas gift this past weekend. It is the European Ford Team Blue jacket, to go with the 1965 Shelby Team Wimbledon White jacket, seen in an earlier post. They are both authentic re-creations from RDLA / OVC. Thanks to Jim Marietta and OVC. I dig these jackets...

Well, it has been over a year since I posted here. We have had 6S289 over 53 years now and we still love our family GT350. In one of my last posts, I mentioned that we just had our first grandchild. He is now just over 19 months old and he loves cars. Guess which car he gets the most excited to see?
One of the photos below shows our family's 2nd (me), 3rd (my son) and now 4th (my grandson) generation with 6S289.
When we open 6S289's door, he climbs right in, grabs the steering wheel and is ready to go through the gears. We may have to help him with the clutch though. 
The family tradition continues with 6S289.

Those are truly great memories being made there.

My grandson's are just a few months younger and have the same love of cars.

Thank you for sharing, gave me a big smile to start my day!

Like you I have our first grandchild, didn’t think I’d have to be 70 to get one. We let her sit in the car while back but she is a “daddy’s girl” and didn’t like it because daddy was not sitting next to her. My kids call my car the 4th child and say it’s dads favorite. Hopefully now that the granddaughter is getting older she will like the car more.
Beautiful pictures of a memory that will last lifetime
Owned since 1971, now driven over 242,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

I especially like the "passie".  If more drivers were to use 'em, I bet there'd be far less road rage!

Good morning!

That's what it's all about, getting the children involved.  Put some precious cargo,  food, sand and fun in that car... memories.

Keep doing what you have been doing,  be well.
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road
