  1. Thanks for posting. 🙂 Have to do Hershey vicariously this year.
  2. The trading stamp purchase of this Vista Cruiser was in the Grand Rapids, Michigan, located on the west side of the lower peninsula.
  3. Saw Eric's car on display at the Red Barns Spectacular show at the Gilmore Museum today. It was a real treat to lay eyes on this special car. 🙂
  4. I really enjoyed your pictures. Gratifying to see car culture alive and well across the globe. Please continue to share events with us. 🙂
  5. Riding in the rumble seat of a 1936 Ford convertible while my wife's uncle transported us from the church to our wedding reception location on August 10, 1968.
  6. Growing up in rural northern Michigan in the fifties and early sixties, there weren't a lot of close neighbors. The widow lady across the road had two memorable cars - a mint green and white 1957 Ford two door sedan and a 1960 Pontiac two door hardtop with a burgundy bottom and white top. Her downstate brother, who occasionally visited, had a 1959 Olds convertible and a 1961 Olds Starfire. Both of those cars were black with white tops and red interiors. The rest of the cars in the area were pretty much four door family sedans.
  7. I have friends who are the second owners of a 1965 Olds Cutlass Vista Cruiser station wagon which was initially purchased with trading stamps. The nuns in their local parish school needed suitable transportation for school use and solicited donations of stamps to secure its purchase.
  8. Driver's ed car was a 1962 Chevy 4 door sedan powered by a 6 cylinder mated to a stick transmission. The make or break test for passing the road portion of driver's ed was stopping and parking the car halfway up a steep hill on a country dirt road. Had to then restart and continue up the hill with rolling backward or stalling the engine. My license test car was my parents' 1956 Olds 88 4 door sedan, with the test administered by the county sheriff. Currently have the '56 Olds Super 88 in my avatar. Reliving my youth, it seems. 🙂
  9. 50 degrees in West Michigan today. Got to take both of my Oldsmobiles ('56 Super 88 & '70 Cutlass Supreme) out for hour long rides. Had the companionship of my wife and a cuppa joe to sip. Real treat to be able to do that in our area this time of year. 😊
  10. Victoria, CORSA (Corvair Society of America) has three chapters in Oregon. 1) Beaver State Corvair Club in Eugene. Web address: corvair.org/chapters/chapter973/ 2) Corsa Oregon in Beaverton Web address: corsaoregon.weebly.com 3) Southern Oregon Corvair Owners in Medford Web contact: stanleyfamily1@attbi.com These clubs may provide you with useful contacts when looking for someone experienced in addressing the waking up of a long stored Corvair.

  11. Regarding the color combo, my childhood neighbor had the same colors but in a different pattern. His car had the dark blue top and dark blue below the chrome spear on the sides. The light blue was between the two dark hues. I admired that car and have looked for years for this color combo, to no avail.
  12. Take a look at the Engels Coach Shop videos on Youtube. Great craftsmanship on display in the reconstruction of projects like this.
