Quick story about this '40 coupe. About a year ago, Mike Meeker sent me a text with some pics of it asking my opinion of what a reasonable offer would be for it. The owner had passed away and his daughter was going to sell it. Neat old survivor car still running a flathead and stock drivetrain. A few weeks ago, while on a road trip with Meeker to pick up a Red Ram Hemi, he asked if I remembered the yellow '40 coupe that he had sent me pics of. He said that the daughter had decided to keep it and she had some local guys helping her get it road worthy. A few days later, I got an e-mail from her after I had closed registration asking if she could still join us. I replied that she should give me a call. Within a few minutes, my phone rang and I got to visit with Penny. She told me about growing up with the coupe and riding on the running board up the driveway when her dad would get home in it. She also told me about driving it to high school with her best friend, and the more she thought about the car, the more she had to keep it because of all the great memories with it. When she showed up on Saturday, before we did the cruise to Crane, she introduced me to her best friend who was riding shotgun with her for the day.
