    Actually I was at the Long Branch show as I have been for at least ten years. If not with the GT Hawk , then with my 64 Avanti R2; both have won many trophies there and at other shows. Maybe next year I will do the Franklin Lakes and N. Caldwell shows that are not know to me. Also, I am in the process of another 64................a R1 Super Hawk. I have also done the Atlantic Highlands show for years with one car or another and once with both.

    where are you located?

    Hawklover, I have a 3 car garage and a lift so the Avanti is on top and the GT Hawk beneath. Now, to decide where the 64 Super Hawk goes after a repaint??

    I am very fortunate in many ways. I hope that good fortune continues when I eventually tell her I bought a 64 Super Hawk, factory 4 speed n A/C. A totally rust free car🤐

    Hawklover, just a thank you as a reminder, I ordered a pair of factory approved exhaust tips from Dave Thibeault. You were correct, they were missing but not an intentional error.

    Hawklover, my 63 GT Hawk has an after market A/C system the original owner installed probably early to mid 1970"s
    My wife is very tolerant, well mostly as other hobbies take time and money too.

    If the Roads get to a point where They're dry with just a bit of White residue I'll likely sneak out with the Champ.

    Today the N.E. got a real blizzard, lots of snow. I am hoping for a quick melting as not driving one of my Studes just isn't what we . I received a pair of correct exhaust tips while I was away. Probably tomorrow or over the weekend I will install them. As long as the wind isn't blowing in the wrong direction, Ill open the garage door and let the GT Hawk idle so I can at least enjoy the sound.
