A friend of mine made a rare appearance with his 58 Special Convertible today at a massive cruise I was at with the Reatta.  This is the first time I have even seen the car in 15 years.  He has owned it since new, in has just under 32K miles on it and is mostly an untouched survivor.

When he was my neighbor, I saw the car a few times, but even then it was rare.  Oddly on the cul-de-sac we lived on there were my Buicks, his 58, a 76 LeSabre conv, and a 71 Skylark Cpe.  There were four guys that had collector cars and we all had Buicks.  Maybe even more odd was 3 of the guys had bought their cars new and my 67 my Granddad bought new and of course it was my first car, so it kind of fit the profile as well.

Kind of neat how some of those things happen that way, Keith.  Might make for some neighborhood cohesion and dynamics!

 

Some years ago, a guy from Dallas was driving up I-35, headed north in his Imperial (60s or 70s car, I don't recall).  Seemed that at every fuel stop he made (which were about 300 miles apart), there seemed to be somebody who had or had had an Imperial at some point in their lives.  He got their names and decided to form an "I-35 Imperial Owners Club".  I'm not sure how long that group lasted, but it seemed like a neat idea (to me, at the time).
