        Oh darn, I expected a Drag Race!

        Very nice Cars Brian, a Black one and a White one, Jon Myer would be proud to own those, the ONLY two colors he likes!

                I think this is what you need 58packardwagon, nice when they are new. No Bob, I haven't started that one yet, been gathering parts for it though, bought a Skytop roof from Bob Andrews going to fit that into it, 5spd from Dan, building up a replica R3 engine for it as well. Have all the panels NOS for it now, got to get my Packardhawk finished first.
                Ok Ed, you have dangled the carrot, I will give you a call this weekend and see what you have, did you get the pics of the Avanti Convertible I just picked up.
                Studie Rich, I saw Myers R2 convertible at SB meet, nice car, we actually went out to the Texas Steak house for dinner one night at the meet along with Greg Diffen, it was good night.
                Rich, do me a favour , see if you can chase Mike down for me and get him to send that door panel for your old 64 to my freighter in L.A, I can't seem to get in contact with him at the minute, not answering emails or phone calls.
                Thanks Brian

                  Brian, looking great. That white one looks familiar...oh yeah, was in my garage for 23 years!

                  I did enjoy it while I owned it. A lot of folks said they'd never seen one before with that combination of Avanti power and Skytop, and I believe it.

                  Was the black car, previously owned by Craig Piper, do you know? It sure looks like the one he had had for a good while.

                    I don't think so Bill, Klif on the forum use to own it, he bought it out of Florida, it is pretty rusty, my buddy bought it on ebay and got ripped preety bad from the last owner, Kliff did warn the new buyer, but he didn't listen.
                    How are you going, have you bought anything new yet?

                      No, nothing new yet. To anyone who is reading this, I did sell my '66 and it's on its way to Australia.

                      At some point, I could enjoy a '66 Cruiser, even a six-cylinder car. Turnkey or close to it is good for a guy like me. Not much in the car budget now since daughter Kelsey is in college now, but one never knows!

                        Those are two very nice Looking Super Larks! Some people see things in black and white. I am more partial to red, but love the black and whilte pair you have.

                          Good to see the white one made it to it's new home - I grew up with that car!

                          1971 to 1979 - learned some auto mechanicals on that Stude - even "learned" body repair - what NOT to do! Bill P. probably saw my "work" LOL. Learned how to weld for the next car - my MGB.
