Could talk about my Studie but should give a shout out for my Val gal - here with her first hubcap change to those rare spinners from about 1977. Funny thing is I kept stopping by for years asking if he would sell it - as she sat on all four flats and I finally got the call - he wanted to know if I could come help move it as it was in the way of a re-pavement job. I grabbed my money - thru a tow bar in o'blue (behind it) and loaded up a change of tires....and he went for the deal. One on my keeper list....
My now slightly ot ‘46 from my avatar is coming on 38 years.

Dad bought his Fordoor in 62 restored it in 68 gave it to me for graduation in 95. She is part of the family and I still enjoy driving her all around town.
At first I owned this 32 coupe about 13 years, then sold it. Regretted it BIG time, tracked it back down years later and bought it back. Now I have owned it a total of over 20 years...with a break in between..
Pardon the first pic, its a photo of a color slide and its warped.
It looks like long ownership leads to a high finish on a car well done guys it is also nice to see a variety of cars thanks for your posts
