  • Easing into summer with my ‘47 Champion convertible

    Finally got my ‘47 Champion convertible out of storage about a month ago. Waited for the Brood X cicadas to finally go back underground for another 17 year hiatus.

    She started right up after 8-1/2 months!

    Great little driver. She has a “socially distanced paint job” (looks good from over 6 ft away).

      Looking Good! The paint will look great to people that see you out driving. Happy driving.

          That must be a really fun driver. I often wish the top would go down on my '55 President on nice sunny days. Enjoy!
