  1. Just saw this, been busy. I'd love to see a photo.
  2. This is reported to be the missing H & E car, but the poster is not willing to offer any information. The car may be in the Chicago area.
  3. I've just featured your build on my Continental Division FB page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/538252899910181/
  4. I miss the shows, but I don't mind talking about old car safety. No heartache at all. Most of our problems are physical. I now have to hire people to do what I used to do myself. That's the biggest change. Seat belts clearly save our lives. That's a message worth spreading. Some may be tired of hearing about it. They're the ones that need to scroll by the message.
  5. The moderators can lock it up if they please, but you assume that we can move forward. Our lives have been irreversibly changed. We haven't traveled in over two years when we had been attending 4-6 Concours a year. We've only done one local show. My wife won't ride in the collector cars anymore. She hasn't driven one since the crash. She hasn't judged since the crash. It's not easy to move on.
  6. Cool find. I knew that there were Roadsters bodied in Australia. Have yet to find a photo of a US version. I'm sure they were made as they would have been the price leader in hard times.
  7. Thanks to the moderators for the thread clean-up.
  8. Thanks for all the kind words, everyone. It has been a trial, on many levels. Even though my wife was badly injured, she really stepped up in my care after the crash. It was a wonderful feeling that so many people stepped up to help us out. That part of M-14 is a problem for my wife. There were a couple of trips to Ann Arbor that she had to drive as I needed a couple of steroid injections. She was visibly shaken and exhibited the "white-knuckle" reaction one would expect. Yes, the lap belts save our lives. I had shoulder belts installed on the Mark II, but she still doesn't fee
  9. Here we are, nearly two years out and we've not made a full recovery. Never will. My poor wife has PSTD and now hates travel by car. Travel by air is difficult for me because of my much slower pace. My wife made it pretty clear in her victim impact statement that she's lost interest in the hobby. She doesn't even want to ride in the old cars, let alone drive hers. She received counceling and we've both received physical therapy, but didn't gain much. Working on cars is much tougher as bumps on the head or getting cut is a real concern now that I'm on blood thinners. The crash pretty-much took
  10. You did see the car at its zenith. It's a shame, but in the end it's just a car. We're here. The laws of Physics and a very unusual set of circumstances got us through this.
  11. The question is a valid one. I read the post.
  12. I looked at the map. It is a half mile to the bridge from the first turnaround, but my wife remembers driving for a while and being passed by several cars. I believe the car was running OK and we turned around at the first turn-around past Curtis road when it started chugging again. I felt I was safe doing 55 in the right lane of a divided freeway. I guess I was wrong. My assessment of the cause of the crash is quite different.
