The '61 Cruiser is ready to go. We leave at 9:00 am Friday. 160 mile road trip, most of it on Old Route 66. As good as it gets!

I like that Lark. Nice mix of original looks but vintage rhetro bomb stuff with the wheel and center caps and skirts. Nice look. I prefer cars that have an old school style and flare but are not OVER done. That or the FULL blown chopped and sectioned metal flake bombs.

we are staying at the homewood suites in forsythe. the wife wants to go there first and we can't get in the room until three, so i'd say somethin' like 4:30 - lets do that pic - maybe we can get Bob Palma to twist some arms and put it in the mag!

On your way back north, I hope you will travel on Route 66, stop in Pontiac and visit the Route 66 Museum. We also have a new Pontiac - Oakland Automobile Museum.
