Great write up. Neat to see a Tulsa car still in Tulsa and on the road.
Congrats on the win, CB!

The Heap is also a Fred Jones car, still in Tulsa county.......though not back 'on the road' again yet.......yeah, yeah, I'm working on it. If Charlie keeps hounding me, it may actually even get wrenched on soon.

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

My world has been pretty upside down lately. My brother in law that I have known for about 48 years, passed away suddenly Tuesday the 30th. He watching the State of the Union address and when my sister went to see if he was ready for bed he had already passed. She never heard a thing. This past Tuesday was the service in Oklahoma which I could not attend since the magazine came out of the printers the same day and I already had an appointment with the Post Office for mailing on Wednesday morning. Then my wife left Thursday to take care of her elderly mother for a week. And yesterday my daughter called to tell us that they are inducing labor on Monday morning. So if I screw something up, I hope it is not too serious. In the mean time if I am supposed to be doing something, you probably will need to remind me of it...

Bill,
I hope I am speaking for all here, Take a little Mr time. I can wait. Go hold you new Grandchild and give your wife a huge hug and decompress. I am sorry to hear about your brother in law.

Best of luck Bill with everything you have on your plate just now. Good things, bad things, all part of the rich tapestry of life my old man would say.

Thank you all and thank you Bill for all the work you do for the Cougar Community. Take care of yourself because we need someone with all the history to keep telling the great stories. The facts and information you add is really interesting to read.

Thanks guys, I don't want the thread to be about me. Actually I am pretty happy over my new grandson's early arrival.

One thing that I like about Charlie's car is the Cinnamon Frost with Saddle color combination. Just like the 1967 XR-7 that they used for the proof of concept XR7-G.

I kinda like those '70 bucket seats too. They look comfy.
