    Love it. What's not to like. Proportioned just right. Who doesn't like polished Americans? I know, there a pain to keep polished.

    Looks like it has disk brakes up front. What year was this and I wonder what they were off of?

    Great lookn’ piece from a great era! Note the real Covico steering wheel... not a Superior, Grant, Ansen or Pip... very true to form.

    One nice Roadster, at that altitude I wonder why the tie rod has a bend in it?

    Aero -- brick aero. It's hiding behind the axle.

    Hey Joey, what about the STP sticker?! Street roadsters had their fair share of great examples and this is one of them. Later on the class went to the crazy side, but machines like this at least looked like they could be a "triple threat". See ya at the Big Boy!
