    yeah it is my ride, thank you I love those fleetlines. I have two of them, my father in law wants me to build him the other one- then I'm going to trade him for a 39 Pontiac that I built him a few years ago..My wife wants the 39, anything I can do to get her more involved I guess, right.

    Roger,

    Its my pleasure, I look forward to your column every month in the Gazette. I've often felt like I was born in the wrong era, your stories often inspire my imagination of how awesome it must have been to grow up in the 50's and 60's! Its great that I get to talk to people about the good old days, sometimes I can listen to these stories for hours. Thanks for the welcome.

    Thanks, I just bought it this last January. I've owned it for just shy of a year, but I have done a lot to it already. It was another builder that owned this car for a number of years, but he never finished it. I finished the paint job and did a few other mild changes. It will do for now, but in a few years I'm going to tear it completely down and change a lot of things, it's an older build and the age is starting to show, at least that sounds like a good excuse for my to re-do the car and make it "my" car.
