Slower, Harder, Less Seductive: 1951 Ford Custom

I’ve had a number of conversations with people about new cars…recently.  The conversation always revolves around reliability, ease of use, and Apple CarPlay.  But I am reminded of Yoda’s advice to a young Skywalker who asks him if the Dark Side is stronger…to which the little green freak replies;  “No, no, no. Quicker, easier, more seductive.” And that’s sums up what I feel about new cars…they aren’t better than old cars, just quicker, easier, and more seductive.  Find this 1951 Ford Custom offered for $2800 in Cape Coral, FL via craigslist.
