Kentucky Antique Store Hoping to Unload a Vintage Beauty
I took one look at this thing and was transported back to Interstates 65, 24, and 75 in 1973. Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida saw a lot of my family back in the day, but only once was it in a big old Ford station wagon. In fact, it looked exactly like this.
We only had that wagon one year; the last time I saw it was many decades ago behind Davis Funeral Home. It had become home to a great big wasp's nest by the back door. But we LOVED that car.
One of the reasons I visit classic car shows is to reminisce about a time when seeing these vintage beauties on the road was commonplace. I also go to fantasize about owning one.
I have to wonder how many memories a certain item at a Kentuckycars antique store has triggered. It's never occurred to me that such a store would sell something like a vintage station wagon, but that's exactly what Henderson KY's Corkscrew Curiosities is doing. Actually, I DON'T have to wonder how many memories it's triggered; I can tell by comment section that THAT has been taken care of.
I'm not sure quite why, but that beautiful rides LOOKS like a Loretta, so good name choice. Corkscrew Curiosities goes on to say:
She’s been well maintained! One spot repaired on drivers seat leather, and back window struggles to go back up (an easy repair I was going to take on myself, but just haven’t) but otherwise in excellent shape for her age. I just unfortunately don’t get her out as much as I’d like and have other projects on the horizon.Mileage is only about 125k!
