Batting for the other side.....

Had a mate and his son visit from NZ recently for my 60th party and the first thing they wanted to see was my HG Van. Daniel said I had a FD part on my Van and it went downhill from there.... I had no idea what the FD part was at this point.... And why would I, a died in the wool Holden Man, have a FD part on my Van.... I was constantly reminded that I batted for the other team and I had converted ..... and during the party Daniel reminded me of the FD part in front of all our friends.... and all the while I thought he was just taking the piss out of me.... so I asked what the 'offending FD part' was.... Number 6 Spark Plug Lead!!!! So I went straight to the shed and retrieved the 'offender' and returned to our guests.... and it went downhill some more.... Joan, a much older than me 'friend' took the 'lead' and announced that she was taking it for her son as he an avid FD Man and wait till I tell him about this.... The Lead had a perfect FD label on it and I had never noticed it as the label was on the bottom of the lead when viewed from the top or front of the engine bay.... And the next day the local markets were on and Joan made a special trip to see the Man with the jigsaw cut outs of car models and keyrings, etc..... And proudly presented me with a F*^%$ING FD KEYRING..... My next door neighbours have an F100, a Galaxie Convertible and a Thunderbird Convertible..... so they now own the Keyring..... But the weekend was a great excuse to get my Cinnamon Brown HG Ute out and go cruising while Russell and Daniel were here. Daniel owns a HR X2 Wagon and a VL Wagon while Russell has a One Owner EH Premier Sedan (Survivor Car Unrestored) purchased more than 25 years ago as well as a restored HQ ute.

IMHO Ford have made some great looking cars and the F100, a Galaxie Convertible and a Thunderbird Convertible are three of them. '39, '49, Model 18, early Mustangs likewise.

I'd never want to own any of them though.
