      Love those Starlight coupes! I bet you are one happy fellow with your car on the road.

        Looks like you've got some Deluxe or Regal trim package there. Makes mine look pretty plain. I can see the following trim upgrades that I don't have: Fender Spears, Hood Ornament, Radio Antenna, fully chromed bullet nose ring, chrome wheel covers... heck, I bet you even have turn signals!

          The Stude is nice but enjoy that grandson. He will remember it.

            It is a state model. The bullet ring is missing the painted trim piece. I still have more trim to install, including the dreaded windshield piece.
            The Grandson returned to Alaska this morning.

              Very neat picture. Enjoy your grandson and Stude. I'm sure he will be a future driver.

                Our kids -- sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters -- are our club's future. Get them involved early, even if only to go for a ride. Our 5-year-old grandson, Aidan, always wants to help me work on Grace, our 5H-K5. Whenever possible, I give him jobs that he can do. Some of those jobs his small hands can do better than my full-sized ones. And 3-year-old Isaac is quite proud of himself when he can help his daddy "wrench" on Sam's '73 International Loadstar dump truck, Red Rusty.
