As the Falcon enters its final week of production, I thought I'd revive this thread to ask if the American Falcon has touched anyones life as well? Or if anyone has any memories of it? Cheers.

My father's first car after moving to the United States in 1963 was a 1962 Falcon wagon.  I don't know if it had the 144 or 170, but it did have a 3 speed manual.  I remember standing on the bench seat between my parents.  He kept it until December 1969 when it had about 90,000 miles and was running on 4 cylinders.

As odd as it sounds, I feel as though I have lost a part of myself with this coming to an end.
