My opinion is leave toilet paper where it belongs, in...

1936 Cabriolet Club Coupe rear seat storage

The 1936 Cabriolet Club Coupe has a trunk.

Re: Drake Free Shipping:

Not me. I just go to other distributors who carry the parts.
Maybe he should fill his own void by stocking parts.
I’m just addressing my experience with a Bob Drake and
I’m sure other people agree.
