Bobby had a 40 (I think) Ford that was beautiful. He was getting ready to start on a 55 or 6 Lincoln convert when he passed away
Wish I had been better back in the day taking photos, who knew, lol. Little 110 camera didn't offer much either. I usually had my video going. I started converting all of them to DVD ( winter projects) they tun out pretty decent. I have tons from KKOA and KOA shows
This was our pontiac!!! It's currently in the UK we took it everywhere for over 10 years.
Glen is still with us, he is on FB. Not in the best of health. Love that "Cat"
Hey Debb... are you going to be a regular here now????
I can't believe I FORGOT about you posting these.
You were just testing me to see if I was paying attention.
Yeah, that's it.
Is that front bumper really sticking that far out or is it an optical illusion?

Sorry seems some of my posts are duplicated, gotta get used to this new (to me) format.
Anyway looking for pics of Bobby Simpson's 40.
In the meantime here is the original show card , hand painted, for Dean Bordner's Ford the he gave to us several years ago
Considering LOL...I love this thread also have to check out Micks and the other one you mentioned. Will see how things go !
I think it is Mark, but I never really noticed it before
Bobby Simpsons 40 and a picture of the back of Ron Box's Pontiac
Jim, I think you are right about the Lead East ad. I looked through SEVERAL magazines and came up with 1 ad but it just had the car hop illustration. I believe there was another ad that had the Ford....
Should be around 1984.
I assume you are thinking of the illustration I did for Lead East 1983, but it is actually a 40 Merc not a Ford.
How do I remember stuff like this? But Sancho was closer, he guessed 84.
That is what I was thinking of. Thanks Mick for posting it, it was driving me nuts!
Not only a Merc, but a convertible sedan (4 doors) with bumpers and the front wheel openings aren't cut up either.
Oh well. I was going off memory.
