“I love my Falcon,” Dixon said. “The Falcon was one of the first compact cars produced in the United States, it was available for 10 years, from 1960 to 1970.” “My Falcon is the four door model, it was also available as a two door or a station wagon. The original paperwork for this car says that Ford was claiming it got 30 miles per gallon, which was almost unheard of at the time. Checking the fuel economy now, I think it gets a little less than 30, but it still averages in the high 20 miles per gallon when I’m out driving it in the summertime.” “I had some help restoring it from my brother Kevin and my buddies Mike and Robbie.” “It is fun to drive around in it and just take in the spring and summer sights in NEPA.”
