‘GOING FORD IS THE GOING THING!’
The first vehicle that I owned was a Ford bought in 1959. It was a light green, second hand 1954 Ford Customline sedan. I bought it when I started working. I purchased my blue Ute, a 1954 Ford Main Line in 1988 from Barry Malony in Narrabundah ACT. I have a 1957 Ford Mainline I purchased from a man in a wrecking yard down at Charlton Victoria. I have a 1979 Ford Fairlane 500 which I purchased new from Ron Lawton Fords in Queanbeyan. I also purchased a brand new 1975 F100 Ford Ute from Morton Fords in Cooma and another purchase was a 2003 BA Fairlane sedan. This was a private purchase in Gunghalin ACT and I use it all the time. This one is my daily use.
