Oh man! I stopped getting notifications from the forum and did not know so many amazing posts had followed!!! You guys are the greatest. I needed the encouragement. They say that as you get older you realize your parents were not only right, but the wisest people you have ever known. Sadly no response from the vegas owner yet. I'm trying a letter next, hoping maybe if he travels he'll have his mail forwarded and consider getting in touch with me. I presume he sold it again, but I'm hoping he might remember something about where it went! Yeah, Ed is my dad. Fast Eddie was his nickname if you really want to see him blush -- I didn't realize he was "known" in the local community, I suppose I should have known. He's so quiet and modest about this stuff, and I suppose knowing how he is I didn't want to tell him I was poking around. He came home all weepy from his weekly Karen's trek, really touched by how many people had reached out to him and that I've been trying to chase this down for him. I got a pretty amazingly long hug. We go to the LA Roadster show every year together on Father's day, walk the cars and just see if there isn't a ringer for his old car. 10 years of roadster shows, boy has it changed. We'd honestly just love to know where it went, even if nothing else. I'm not giving up, I'm stubborn and he's worth turning over every rock. I'm going to chase down what everyone here has suggested, and I apologize for not updating sooner. I will again soon!!! Enormous hugs from an inspired daughter and her bad-a** dad whose selflessness would never let him ask for help from the people who love him and would like to help him in return.
