    There you go! And, as you find these items, you need to put them into a folder, because I'm sure one of your kids will end up with the car eventually, and you'll want them to have it to show their generation.

    My oldest son adores the Fury. He has already laid claim to it. This works out fine since my youngest son loves trucks, so he'll get Grandpa's F-100.

    Another neat thing is we recently discovered some old photo albums at Grandma and Grandpa's house. The boys love looking at the photos and get excited whenever they see the Fury or the F-100 in an old family photo.

    One of these days I'll scan some of them and share them with you all.

    We came across this 1964 Plymouth 4 door awhile back, on the outskirts of a little old logging town at the edge of the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.
    I don't usually drive out that way with the Fury, instead it's usually the pickup loaded up with camping or fishing gear.
    But a we were invited to a party out that way and we decided it would be fun to take the Fury and drive the old two lane highway.
    So, of course when we got to where this old Plymouth was sitting I couldn't miss the opportunity to stage a little photo op.
    1964 Plymouth's are few and far between around here.

    The boys thought it was pretty darn cool to see another car like ours, even if it isn't a wagon.

    Oh, I'd love to have it. I built that car in my mind more than once. Unfortunately I don't have the money or the space for another car right now.
    I hope it goes to a good home and I get to see it cruising around someday.

    A dog, as the 'middle child?' Yeah, I can see that.

    When looking through old family photos of Grandpa for his funeral a few weeks back I came across a number that had the Fury in them.

    Here's one of Grandpa and a relative that had come to Kennewick for a visit.

    Here are a few from a camping trip in 1969

    This would have been one of the last years they used the Fury to pull a camping trailer. In 1971 they bought the F-100 and the Aristocrat Lo-Liner.

    There are more that I'll have to scan so that I can share.
