    Update on Colette the Clipper. She is no longer a "no door" but rather a three door at this point.Click image for larger version

      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.

              Yes, I have the complete blower, manifold, airbox and air cleaner etc to make it complete. My artist(painter) buddy convinced me to stay with these factory colors as it was so washed out and sun faded that I was contemplating a change. I now have no regrets in staying with the original 1957 colors. Thanks for all the support and encouragement as at times I was certainly questioning my sanity.

                Hi Bill, Looks fantastic!
                I can't wait to get some paint on my 57 Packard wagon.
                I too was contemplating changing the color on my wagon. But after conversing with Mr. Quinn and finding out how few were painted in the Inca Cream-Artic White spring colors, I also decided to stay with the original colors.
                Keep up the good work!
