"SIR, Uhh SIR, What the **** are you doing at the rear of my car. And HEY YOU, the guy with the stick, I've got the key to open that hood. And NO, I did not order a touch up paint job. And Kilroy, what are you doing in my car?

IF YOU WERE TO SERIOUSLY CONSIDER NEW ORLEANS:

 

1. No later than mid-May

2. No earlier than After Hershey

3. A suburban area outside of the city

4. We have at least 4 national members (probably more) within a 50 mile radius, but no local region. Help could be available, and the National WWII Museum has enough attractions for a couple of days visit One of our BCA members, Jack Wade III was heavily involved in restoring the only operational and fully functional PT Boat, the PT-305.

One more before I get out to the garage.

I bought this car for my Wife in 1981 when we bought our house. It was going to be for hauling her garden stuff.

Ummm, never did get done. And the woods wasn't there when we parked it.

You could probably drag this out and build a "derelict" out of it.  Derelict - old patina body on a new tubular chassis with a high hp engine.

That is not something I am into. I remember the beginnings of those cars and the rat rod counterculture movement. They were guys saying "Oh, Mister big bucks car builder, I'll show you what a piece of crap I can show up in." I heard that in actual conversations. Now there are big buck derelict and rat rods. It is a common social reaction.

 

Personally, I like shiny cars in real nice condition. Ones without a fly speck and ones that make ME happy, me first.

I grew up to my Dad having a new car every 60,000 miles that was washed every Saturday, my Grandmother always had a nice shiny black Buick, my Mother always noticed attractive cars even to the last couple of weeks of her 83 years. My Uncles aspired to have a Buick to gain favor in my Grandmother's eyes, and my older cousins always had something special. If I can't walk up to my car admiring how good it looks to me or turn back for a look as I walk away for a look, the relationship is over. Those people are motivated by something I don't connect with.

 

As to the rear view:
