  1. Back in the early 1980's, I owned a 1958 Edsel Ranger with a column shift, three speed manual transmission.
  2. This picture was taken with my 2 year old daughter, in January 1979, the day I bought home my new 1979 Turbo Mustang.
  3. They are pages out of the 1958 Edsel brochure. http://www.lov2xlr8.no/brochures/ford/58eds/58eds.html
  4. I worked for a Dodge dealer in 1966 thru 1968. I didn't see many Monaco station wagons even then. Great find, do enjoy.
  5. Since I sold my 1969 Plymouth, I have no need for the; 1969 Texas Inspection Sticker. It still has the protective film on the face side. $20.00 shipped.
  6. My first Edsel was a 1958 Pacer 2 dr ht. It was color code GEE, Horizon Blue and Snow White, with red and white interior. When it was restored, it went back as factory original even as the restorer wanted me to change the colors. I felt as going back as per factory delivered, it did justice to the car.
  7. Enjoyed the pictures, thank you for posting them.
  8. I've been covering my cars for aver 30 years. I have never covered my cars when they are hot from engine heat, also, from heat from the sun. Especially darker colors. I have never experienced any paint problems on my cars. My last car, a Black Lacquer 1969 Plymouth Road Runner I owned and covered for 28 years, still looked great. I buy only quality covers, not the generic Walmart type.
  9. Interesting, I think it's worth trying.
  10. Thank you for posting the picture link, enjoyed.
  11. Here is a picture of one of the plaques we had made. Also, my jacket that modeled after the plaque. Our wives had matching pink jackets. We were an active club starting about 1982, here in the Houston, Texas area. The club seemed to die off in the late 1980's. Some of the members kept in contact with each other into the early 2000's.
  12. I used to spend summers in Mass. I never herd of the Easton Falcons. I would loved to have seen their cars. The club plaques are cool. In the 1980's the club I belonged to had both jackets and plaques made. I'll post pictures if you would like.
  13. I met Art in the mid 1970's thru the Cape Canaveral chapter of the AACoA, of which I was a member. He was one of the owners of Scrip Antique Auto in Melbourne Florida at the time. They did a fantastic job of restoring my 1958 Edsel Pacer. The last time I saw Art was in 2009, when I came to one of the club business meetings while I was in town. He will be missed. He was a fine gentleman and friend. While I was in Florida, he was always there to help in any way he could. Rest in peace Art!
  14. Unique, I like it, great job. Do post pictures when you get it finished.
  15. I currently have 202 dealer promos on display. I still have the first promos that my father got for me in the mid and late 1950's. Since I can't have all the full size cars I want, I had to resort to collecting 1/25 scale models and promos, with a total of 574 on display in show cases.
  16. I put DOT 5 brake fluid in my 69 Plymouth Road Runner, in 1990. It is still as clear as the day I put it in. I have never had a brake problem.
  17. Since I plan to sell several of my older cars this coming year, I'm sure the market is going to be down,
  18. Very nice, I can't remember the last time I saw one.
