    Had a great time at the Back to the Fifties event this weekend. I have seen this car in pictures before,but never in person til this past weekend. The picture I took of Faith Grainger standing next to the car gives you an idea of how small the car really is.

    I parked next to him at Back to the 50's last year and talked to him about his cars, he says it is fun passing people on the interstate with them and watching the look on their faces.
