The meeting tonight was amazing in that the fellas went on and on about this and that about the phaeton that they liked. They loved the patina. They loved the updated steering box and dual exhaust with headers. They loved the fog light. They loved the interior. We had 15 guys and I thought they must have collectively been into their Christmas cheer early! Several guys offered to buy it... very cheaply. Ah, that is more like it! Some evidence: Yep, 'ol "Lucille" was a hit!! I knew they would like it but I didn't they would like it so much! When we first started the club in 1974, very few hot rods were actually enough together to be driving them very far, if at all! I was a regular and always drove my ragged Model A highboy tudor sedan to every meeting unless I drove my other hot rod, a 33 Chevy tudor sedan. I took a lot of ribbing about the unique appearance of my old model A but I, or even someone else in the club, would often shut the negative observer with the aforementioned line of "Where's yours?" The car wasn't very pretty but it was very reliable and even quicker... which also was quite effective on the road at shutting down negative comments as it pretty well blew everybody off the road over time... and often by a very big margin! Those were the days. Now, these are the days and we're doing our best to carry on the fun and the fellowship with hot rods.
