ID:	1752008At last weekend's AACA Fall Central meet in Galveston, Texas, my Coupe-Express was awarded its Senior award. What fun. The Wig-Wag taillight fascinated spectators. There was a vey nice '51 Starlight Coupe on the field and Fred Duplechin had his '88 Avanti convertible there.

    Note the Dick Quinn - supplied reprint of Coupe-Express advertising. It was great to have stuff like that to display with the truck.

    Now that I have this out of my system, it's time for the CE to become a driver. It did very well on the 160 mile ASC tour in the heat at the International meet in Dover, Delaware in 2014, but will do even better once I get the overdrive hooked up. Tom

        Is blue the original color, or did you change it? It looks great.

          Congratulations Tom. Now that you have won all those awards time to put the white walls on! Oh, and don't forget where you got that wig-wag! By the way here is a little larger view of that '37 Coupe Express graphic.

                I remember that truck in Dover. You may still be wiping my drool off of it.

                    Congratuations, Tom!

                    Don't put white walls on it. After all, it is a 1937 TRUCK.

                      Congrats, Tom! I am sorry that I was not able to meet you & Fred there. I had planned to head to Galveston early Sat morning, but a sudden death in the family Fri evening abruptly changed my plans.
