Nice thanks Gina. How many falcons were there this year?

Here's a few more for the collection. Had a nice time and saw some pretty cool Falcons & Comets.

Monte and Allen (from the Columbia River club) mentioned we should consider having it up here next year. Something to consider!

Maybe about 30 or so, nice comet...and I was a great and long day, plus good food...jh[AGREE]

Hello, Gina.

Is your brown (maybe maroon) Comet a 1963? I like the little tail fins. The six tail lights and wrap-around front bumper look nice also.

In picture "IMG_1144.jpg (4 of 5)" the tail of the brown Comet is close up and there looks to be a black Comet in the background.

Thanks, Dennis.

Yes, we were blessed by perfect car show weather. Dennis....my Comet is a 62 S-22 which is kinda the Futura of Comets. The three tail lights, bucket seats with a console. The black one was a 62 also but the plain jane version and not an S-22.

Good thing I only REALLY only like the early years. But seriously I love my car. She is worn out from the long drive and is doing some weird surging now. It's always something.

I took quite a few pics also, they are of the same cars but you might want to see them anyway. There will be several more attachments to get them all. It was a good show and enjoyed the time.

There was one mustang guy who asked if he could come in and I told him hell no. Not very nice.:banana:Larry

Great work Larry! Thanks for posting all those individual shots. There sure were a lot of nice cars there.

Ah man... there is a pic of me with my hands in the Crispe Creme box!

Was a great day. Sadly I realized on the way home I didn't even take one picture - so busy talking about vacuum advance and Autolite 1100 carburetors. :o

Good to see so many of you did take pictures.

For future notes... we are being asked to host it next year, so please be thinking towards that and making plans to attend. We had 4 Falcons out of the 35+ cars, so it would be nice to see everyone who is local to make the mini-trek to the one we host. ;)

The car is at the upholstery shop now when it's back it's go time. Meetings, events, show,ect if I have gas money I'm there.

You guys included a picture of a Mercury "Ranchero" (see below). I never knew that these existed. What years were they made? What were they called?


Thanks, Dennis.

08-27-2013, 04:18 PM
They are like the Jackalope - plenty of them out there, but fabricated by humans.

This guy built it this way. The story on the hood said that Canada created the Ranchero under the Mercury badge (just like pickups) until the 1960 model. So he took up the idea of "what if" and built this "Commachero" as he called it. It was for sale... $11,500. I have his card if you are interested.

08-27-2013, 05:11 PM
Thanks, but I can't buy another car for numerous reasons.

He did a really good job, though, on the fabrication of the counterfeit Mercury pickup.

First mini-regional for me and it was fun. Met some outstanding people and saw some great cars. My question is......did it seem like not many Falcons showed up, or is that to be expected. I honestly thought there would be more cars. Not complaining and if that is what we should expect, then lets go for it.

I hope we discuss this further at the next meeting. I believe with a lot of leg work we can draw in a bunch of sponsors, advertise, with sponsors help offer trophies, come up with associated sponsors being at the exhibit, selling. Food vendors, or at a local that is more upstage to bring in families. This one was good, but we can be great. Sorry, got me started. I would like to do this, as if you couldn't tell. Larry

My first mini too and I had a great time. My co-pilots back was out so she was a hurtin' unit but no regrets. I'm with Larry, I think we should host next years. I don't have any grand ideas to make it better but am willing to help out when the time comes. Probably wont be at the meeting so now you have my thoughts.

08-29-2013, 10:56 AM
I also think this would be a good thing to do and would be willing to work on it. For the vote: AYE!

I'm in. And I'll have a car this time.
I did a bronco event in Arizona for a few years and built it up to 300 broncos and had 12k in raffles prizes. So I'm in.
