  1. My first date, in my own car was in July, 1966. I had graduated high school in June. My father cosigned for a car loan for a 1963 Chevrolet Impala

    convertible. It was Polomar Red, with black interior and top.

    On the way home from the dealership, a girl I went to school with was standing on the curb in front of her house. I stopped to show off my 'new' car.

    She was waiting for her 1959 Ford that she just bought, to be delivered.

    She like my car, and out of the blue, I asked her to a movie that night. We dated for about a year, then went our separate ways.

    We stayed in touch, until she passed away in March, 2016.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    Sure, post them!

    I think my plaque is from the 1950's. It would be interesting to see one from the 1980's

     

    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.

  5. 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!
