  • Got my birthday wish this year

    Last year i so wanted to get my 56 Champion done so I could drive it on my birthday May 24. It did not happen for various reasons and had to leave it for the summer. This past winter I got it mostly completed as most of you who have been following my progress would know.
    This year my goal was to take it to the Chatham Car show which was on my birthday today.
    We got our radio back from getting it rebuilt last Saturday and got it installed this week as well I got my authentic A&W car hop tray for the A&W mugs Jessie bought me this week so off we went for a truly enjoyable day. The show and weather was great and made new friends. There were at least 2 larks and a Champ there today as well and a lot of photos were taken of our car.
    This was our first show and a beautiful start to a new season. Nick

    Congratulations, Nick; the car looksbeautiful!

    Is that a 1973 Mustang convertible down two spots?

    Anyway, you have to have one of the nicest 1956 Champions on the planet. Enjoy! BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                The Champion is looking Great! It looks like you need some Root Beer or Water with Brown food color in those Mugs unless you have 7 UP in there!

                  Happy birthday, and congratulations on getting your car ready. She looks really nice. I don't wonder that she was well photographed during the car show.
