    Hey Bob~
    If you ever need to unload that really big LeSabre (you know, to make room) I'd be happy to give it a good home where it could drop it's top a little more often...

        Geeze, what a bunch of vultures out there <GGG>! [)][:I]

        In the other thread, SDCer (but primarily MoPar enthusiast) Frank Remlinger offered to take the '71 Barracuda convertible off my hands, and now StudeDave is zeroing in on the LeSabre...yipes!

        Off to install new locks....! (Sorry; nothing's for sale.) BP
        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

            Ya' know, I hate to say it, but that 1972 LeSabre Custom Convertible is the tightest car I own. It's a 95,000-mile original paint car and every time I drive it, I can't believe how rattle-free it is. I don't mean "for a convertible," I mean it's just tight and rattle-free period! Helluva cruiser, but I guess you must know that, Dave. BP

                    Hey, does club seniority have any say in who gets to steal the Barracuda first? And heck, if I can get a flatbed, maybe I'll take one of those two white Daytonas too. Need to make room for whatever Bob decides to bring home next...

                        Indeed I do. Fact is- I had to give up my '72 Electra 225 shortly after coming across Sweet Pea. She's been great and all, but boy do I miss having that 455 roaring once in awhile!!! [:0] [^]

                            Hey Bob... I just hafta know! Is a "Morton" building a mid-western term for what we Westerners (in the real West!) call a "Pole Building" or what? [:0]

                            Whatever it is, it's NICE! I am surprised that the City building code would let you build something THAT big in the City! [:0]

                            It sure doesn't look Rural like my 1 acre place, with a 32' X 84' Pole Building attached to a 24' X 36' Garage and a 19' X 36' Carport behind that! [^]
