  2. I just picked up this 1/25 scale, 1963 Riviera Model Kit; It has been assembled, but not painted.
  3. My high school car was a 1959 Mercury Montery. It was rescued from behind a Texaco gas station, for $100. That was in January 1966. This is the only picture I have of it.
  4. Out of my eight vehicles, four have manual transmissions, and four have automatic transmissions.
  5. That will not work on a 1966 Mustang. 1967 was the first year the Mustang had in dash air conditioning. The controls showing in the first picture above the dash vent, is for a 1968 Mustang.
  6. This is not a historic Buick Dealership, but I took this off my then new 1977 Buick Century. At the time, I was living in Melbourne Florida. I wanted a white with blue interior Century. Lane Pontiac, Buick did a dealer trade, and what came in was, Blue with White interior. Before I left the dealership, I pulled off the emblem. That's all I have left of my 77 Century.
  7. 211 are dealer promos. 391 That I built myself. With several in process. And, plenty still in boxes. I’ve been building and collecting model cars, since my Father gave me my first dealer promo in 1955. Yes, I do still have it. Many of the cereal box cars, I got out of the cereal boxes myself. In one way I’m lucky, my 23 year old granddaughter, wants all the models, and my 65 Corvette. She has a strong interest in cars, both big and small.

  16. 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.
