Rick has owned this car for 20 years. When Rick and Kathy started dating many years ago, Rick was driving a 1956 Mercury.  He couldn't find one, so the 1956 Ford was a very nice compromise. Interesting fact is the 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria only sold 9,200 units at a base price of $2,195 dollars which makes this a very sought-after classic.

Rick and Kathy will be at the 2023 CAL-RODS reunion picnic with his car. Check it out; it is perfect. Another beautiful car in CAL-RODS. The Potters have many other classics, but I love this Ford.
