Ok Roger, thanks for the tutoring...here's the try with the first signature. Hopefully it works...
Well...looks like the pic is quite big....need to shrink it.
Shrunk it now...and just for fun, used the apple blemish tool and partially rubbed out part of the fender dent!

Happy Monday,

My Name is Will Sando and I am the proud new owner of a 1962 Ford Falcon Futura. I own and operate an auto repair shop in Coeur d Alene, ID but I have always loved restoring Fords from the 50's & 60's (much more character than those mini-van things). I look forward to getting to know you other Ford enthusiasts more.

Hi, new member here, I've already proven what a newbie I am in my posts, hahaha.
I'm Michelle, and my husband is Michael, and we have a '62 wagon.

Do you folks have T-shirts, or thinking about making club shirts, or is that just corny? I have an idea for one, it's really simple if you wanted to see it, basically just the "R" form Rainier Brewing Co (we use in here in Renton for Renton shirts, haha) with the Falcon logo under it.

Hope to meet you all next month

I just posted a few pics, one of when we first obtained her, and a few of her in paint works. I don't have a current picture of the entire car because she is in the shop right now. her name is "Mexican Blonde" and we are going with a Mexican theme.

Hello, Michael and Michelle.

I clicked on your web page link and found the photos of your 62 wagon "Mexican Blonde". Very nice! I like the Deluxe trim and the metal gravel panels that they placed on the rear fenders that year. Have you noticed how the back edges of the rear side windows curve in to meet the back window and give a streamlined "boat tail" effect? That is kind of like the wrap-around windshields of the cars in the 1950's.

Have you noticed the little patch of black accent paint in the trim right above the headlight?

You even have the original gas cap.

Que Bella!

Hello, all! My name is Richard and I just joined the forum. I'm starting to do a little work to my Falcon and thought this would be a great place for info and advice. I have a convertible '63 Futura with a 170 and manual 4 speed. Looking forward to doing some work on this thing! I want to start driving it on weekends again.

I'm from Sanford, Florida. I have pictures on my phone but can't figure out how to upload them without a computer. The car has been in my family since the mid 60s. It was my grandfathers car so it really means a lot. I'm really excited about getting to the point where I can drive it regularly.

It might take some expense and aggravation to get everything on your Falcon working correctly, but keep telling yourself: "This is a hobby. This is a hocbby." Once you get everything worked out you will enjoy the heck out of driving your little convertible. You will cause a stir every time you pull into a gas station or a grocery store parking lot. Falcons are wonderful little cars.


I do not want to steal you away from the Rainier Falcons. These are great guys and they have a terrific bulletin board. But given that you live in Sanford .... you may also want to get in touch with the Sun Coast Falcons, a Florida section of the Falcon Club of America.

See: http://www.flfalcon.com/ and Bill Shira, President, at shirawd@aol.com

Upcoming club events:

Dec 10, 2016 Suncoast Chapter Meeting and Christmas Luncheon, election of officers, Meeting will be at Red Lobster in Old Town Kissimmee, Fl. 11:30 AM.

Jan 7, 2017 23rd Annual Ford and Mustang Round Up at Silver Springs, registration is now open on line www.npdlink.com .

Have fun with your Falcon. Dennis in Tampa.
