    Wow, I didn't think there could be two pink coupes in Texas, but one just passed me doing 130mph. I had to swerve to miss the beer cans flying out the window of the coupe! It couldn't of been your car because I didn't see a 67 year-old-guy in it. The one that passed me looked like it was full of half naked women.

    I'm with ya here man. I had a 58 Caddie convertable a while back. Like 1984. The old guy that did the top wanted it for two weeks to do it right. Yea, a day to do the top and 13 days to cruise his wife around. It was lipstick pink imron with a white top.
    I saw him around town a couple of times and it was worth it.
    He was a cool old cat from back in the day.

    That car looks awesome! I think it's fun to see your own car driving from different angles. It's neat to see something besides the dash.

    Oh man--another hour or so!!!--I could have put this on a trailer behind a U-haul as thats how my econoline is going--but Wally looked like he needed a break from his B-ville quest--I figured if he could go 180 on 3 wheels he could get an old car down the road

    Only 67??? Im 69 and make that ride from Boise City to Ruidoso several times a year.Iv seen your car around AmaTex several times.Good car. Just give him a little slack. Us older guys need to pee more often than we used to, and take more coffee breaks than necessary, therefore we pee more. Probably just enjoying the drive.

    Hell, I'm his age and would probably be enjoying the ride with some ZZ Top on the radio about now. :D We don't need no stinkin' cell phones, we know how to read a road map.

    He'll make it fine.

    Hell, I took my Dad's '29 roadster to enter it in a show 40 miles away in 1974...didn't return for days. There were lots of new runs then...around San Jose, CA.
    If I'd wanted to, I could've kept 'show-and-run-jumping' for a month!

    That thing was hell to sleep in...tight rumble seat, couldn't quite shut the decklid completely, with me in it...January, too...cold, I'm still shiverin'.

    NEWS FLASH......... "Texas State Police are in pursuit of a pink, yes, I said pink early model coupe. It seems a trooper tried to pull over the car for doing 135mph in a 60 mph zone when the driver tossed a beer can at the squad car and his half naked passengers dropped shorts and "mooned" the officer." Trooper McMillian said "the last thing I seen was a man in his late sixties smiling out the window and *POOF* they were gone." "Stay tuned for the latest updates." ........

    Sounds like the old guy (my age) isn't ready to give up the ride just yet, I hope you gave him plenty of money or a credit car for gas.

    Yipee!!!!

    Now you can stop worrying. Iv wanted to move to Alamogordo for a long time. Never even checked into any property tho. Living on SS so wont do any moving probably.Just one of those dreams. Always wanted to get to a warmer climate where I could see the mountains.
