    1953 Ford Customline
    My name is Ray and I have 1953 Ford Customline.


    My two sons and I went to a little Mom and Pop Drag strip tucked away in the hills of middle Tennessee that we rarely ever went to. And as we drove in I saw this Cherry red 53 ford sitting on a flatbed trailer parked in the pit area. I told my boys that my Father had one like that when I was a Kid back in Texas. But he sold it when I was a Teenager. So we went over to look at it just to bring back memories, as my Father had just passed away about a year earlier. The car was for sale. We talked to the guy who owned it and told him how my Father had one like it when I was a kid. Only his car was green. I didn't have the money to buy it so I wished him luck in selling it. As I shook his hand he asked me my name. I told him and he got a strange look on his face, as though he had lost his breath. Then said "I need to show you something" and went to the car and pulled two receipts from the glove box and handed them to me. The receipts were for a 6V battery; it wouldn't hold a charge and was returned for another. Both receipts were signed by my Father, Raymond Sr. After 20 some odd years, the car found me... Needless to say, I found the money, did a little trading and bought the car. My sons are grown now. But we've done all the things that My Father and I did with this car in my childhood. We continue to enjoy the car and I’m sure someday they will enjoy it with their sons as well.
