Geez, Chris, we live so close yet never met. Bummer. Best of luck with the sale, 32 years is a long time!

Thanks, I'm sure I'll get the '67 out a bunch more & we'll run into each other this summer.

UPDATE: The car is slated to cross the block on Sat evening, run # S719.

I'm very glad they gave it a prime time spot, up there with the big dogs!

If you are at the auctions, stop by & say "hi" to Dave W. (Wed, Thurs), me (Thurs, Fri, Sat) & a revolving cast of characters .

Yeah, that was after he fixed the crank pulley, or damper.
At least Chris kept it on the road. Remember the guy with the Pontiac G8 (or whatever) that lost it and went off roading? Messed up his new car a bit.
