    The Mercury Comet(Ford Falcon) was one of Ford's greatest success stories. The first gen Mustang was nothing more than a re-skinned Falcon. The Ford Maverick was a re-bodied Falcon. The Falcon was built in Argentina , with it's original 1960 style body, until 1991. The Falcon was first assembled in Australia starting in 1963. It was so well liked in the land of Oz, Skippy continued to develop the Falcon long after is was abandoned in every other Ford market. Possibly one of the greatest ROI of any auto engineering project ever.

    I don't think anyone makes a car battery with a lifetime warranty anymore. Amazing that JC Penney still honors their warranty even though they no longer service cars. It may be the original engine, but I'm sure it's been re-ringed/rebuilt, or whatever you do to refurbish an engine. What really amazes me about this story is that this has been her only car for 40+ years.

    Inspiring old car and old lady. Would like to see more stories like this. What a treat. Thanks.

    I especially like the part about the lifetime warranty! Good for her. There is hope for all of us.
