    They have been doing that for a while now. I saw them give away a restored 1955 T bird.

    Are you sure it wasn't a 1955 rerun?
     
  9. What a great bloody prize to win! Beats those modern, plug in, charge up, fit-em-up-yer-nose- throwaway disposable Hyundaze and Toyato's any day of the week...though (I have to 'fess) I do like the new Toyota 86,

    That is super cool, nice to hear the forces understand the appeal of an older car. ~sololobo~
