Just out of curiosity to Seyser, what is the car on your other photo? Do you or anyone else here have any idea?
Kinda looks like a Dodge Coronet but different hood.

Hi, Gauntjoh.
If you can get to it, Mary has a pocket hard drive with ALL of my collected 'stuff' up to the National Show In Iowa this year. Or, if you ask Mary VERY nicely - maybe send her a bunch of flowers anda box chocolates - she may make a copy of it for you.

Or you could threaten Jan Meermans with a knee-capping as he has the same hard drive copy.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

The crash of a pile driver shatters the silence, bulldozers and caterpillar tractors roar as they carve out a
lifeline to our northern bastion. Engineers are shown pounding bridge supports into the riverbed, completing
another link

OM-

My folks bought new 50, 53, and 57 Pontiacs from Hansen Pontiac located near the now missing Fosters Freeze in Watsonville. Their store was an automatic transmission shop in the 80s/90s.
