    I finished the car in September and showed it at the Concours of America at St. Johns. On August 7th 2015 we set out to drive across Michigan to be in a Concours in St. Joseph when the car sputtered and would only do 55 when it had been doing 70 with no problem. I pulled off and could find...

    Here's another of my projects. Most young people aren't aware, but 1942 cars are pretty rare due to production stoppage during WWII. This project was started 10 years ago by the previous owner. I bought it as a restored 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle. It's on it's way to Oklahoma for an interior...

    Berry is a fruit. I am not. The Mark across the street still only has 6,000 miles on it. If you want pictures of the Mark II just Google "Mark II convertible". There's a bunch. OK, one more.

    P.S. Finished the trailer and wrecked it on its maiden voyage. Shortly after meeting Bryan. Insurance company paid me $1,000 an hour to fix it. Had it towed to a show the next season with the Porsche in the back. Haven't used it since. http://cardomain.com/ride/340096/5 Bring snacks. Not for...

    Still out here. Yes, I left the political forum, but it wasn't because of someone that left. Bob, your words speak for themselves. I'll leave it at that. The rest of the story is that my life took a turn two years ago when my wife was hospitalized for 17 days due to ovarian cancer. They gave...

    Update on "Toybox" trailer project

    No, I think I'm going to show it in a couple of places this year and then I'm going to try and get it into B-J or some other big auction. I'm on to a new project. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/752157
