I was checking out the cable menu and saw "The Lottery Changed My Life" on TLC. I wouldn't normally have watched it but I did for some reason. There was a guy who won $62.8 million in a lottery and took a 25.8 million dollar lump sum payout. He is an auto mechanic named Phillip and one car he was showing off was a `65 Sprint they said was valued at $21,000.

Nice to see a multimillionaire with good taste in cars!

There's a movie from the late '80s or early '90s Called "Summer School" with Mark Harmon. He drives a '64 or '64 convertible and I think it gets quite a bit of screen time. A fairly bland movie if I remember right - I haven't seen it in years.

Two great video's.

Would love a Falcon that fast... and that tight. Loved watching the shots where you could see the cars in the rear view mirror getting dropped.

I've seen that lady on TV as well as uTube before. Great story. "Oh, here's my lifetime warranty on my shock absorbers.. and I'm on my third free set." That's great stuff. No doubt it costs an arm and leg to keep that stock AC unit charged... but somehow... I bet it works. I didn't know they made a 4-door Caliente though (sp?). I had a buddy in High School with a hardtop and I've seen two other hardtops, but this is the first 4-door. I just searched and they are far more rare than 2 door versions.

Temple Grandin

We just watched an HBO movie about Temple Grandin, an autistic scientist who revolutionized progressive livestock production, and also the understanding of autism. It practically FEATURED Ford Falcons. It takes place in the mid-to-late 1960's, and in the movie Temple's mother drives a beautiful '63 station wagon. There were a couple of other scenes where you can get a glimpse of a round-body Ranchero and another sedan.
Makes me wonder if the producer, or someone in the crew, is a card-carrying FCA member!
It was a really good movie, too!

1961 Falcon on Fast n' Loud

The "Gas Monkeys" on the TV show "Fast n' Loud" bought a Deluxe 1961 two-door sedan with bench seats and a 144 motor with only 8500 miles on it for $5000. They had it delivered from out of state for $1300. They got it to start and flipped it for $8000, unrestored.

They gave the car a nice discussion and said that it was a favorite of Robert MacNamara and the Father of the Mustang. They described it as sporty, as Ford's first compact, and a favorite of hot rodders.

It was a pleasant surprise to see a little Falcon being spoken of so positively on a car collector's show. Look at all the positive comments people posted about it: https://www.facebook.com/GasMonkeyGa...21018224588182

This is odd. They sold it on the TV show, for $8000, and I see it on this e-bay post as having sold for $9,300. Maybe the buyer on the show welched on his deal.
See: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1961-Ford-Falcon-Time-Capsule-8242-Original-Miles-Offered-by-Gas-Monkey-Garage-/290985039028?viewitem=&sspagename=ADME%3AB%3AEF%3A MOTORS%3A1123&forcerRptr=true&item=290985039028&nm a=true&si=%252F0sYmCbrHwUkpytuIATX8Ll8ndM%253D&ori g_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

"... This 1961 Falcon takes you back to time when having a set of wheels meant having the freedom to hit the open road and explore all that this great Country has to offer!"

Yea! I'm ready to go!

I saw that episode too. I thought the $8000 was reaching to the high side but it with only 8,200 miles it wasn't not totally out of line for a garaged, one-owner. And it still had the "little old lady" plastic seat covers over the original upholstery since it was new! Also it was a tudor, mostly original paint, radio delete, and I really like that trim package. I think that's the only year it was available.

I record this show and saw it. In fact Kenny asked about cam break-in on John's thread and the just dealt with a bad cam break-in on a Mustang Shelby.

But yeah, this Falcon was seen on the rack on the episode a week earlier and I was hoping they did a real build on it - but was just a flip.
