And speaking of running cars, don’t let the pink paint on that Meteor fool you. That car will up and fly. That’s a spring of 56 produced car, so it’s got the new spring color of Coral Mist, the new Victoria 4dr hardtop bodystyle introduced mid year, and best of all, the full Mercury powertrain of a high output Y-312, plus an aluminum intake and a big Motorcraft carb. All crammed into the lightweight Ford body. It’ll run 130 all day long, and barely break a sweat.

Bubba, hold my beer.
