When the Maverick finally breathed its last, Ford promptly trotted out its replacement. The Granada was built from 1975 to 1982. In all, more than 2 million Granadas clogged the American roadways — each, surely, driven by an old lady with blue rinse in her hair.
This car? Great Aunt Myrtle, according to our correspondent, appears to have “simply pulled up into a yard, the ignition shut off, went inside to fix dinner and never came back.”
She stopped this 1980 Granada on a road somewhere in Alaska, 4,200 miles (more or less) northwest of Atlanta.
