My wife and I took "The Wonder Falcon" on a 95-mile round trip yesterday to Weeki Wachee Spring, home of the mermaids. The car ran beautifully. My two-speed Ford-O-Matic Drive shifts smoothly and runs cool. The kickdown worked and the car down-shifted into passing gear when I sped up to pass through a yellow light. Cool!

"The mermaids at Weeki Wachee Springs have delighted visitors since 1947. Today, visitors can still witness the magic of the mermaids, take a river boat cruise and canoe or kayak on the Weeki Wachee River. The 538-acre park features a first magnitude spring and a 400-seat submerged theatre for watching the live mermaid show."
