Hey old Tom and Pete, thanks fellas for bringing this to my attention. A good read, and BONUS, the largest batch of "flathead" pornography I've seen this summer.

There is some stuff I never heard of. I took Ol Ron there on a Bonneville trip but the museum was closed that day. Sure would have enjoyed a closer look. Glad for the link, though. Thanks,
JWL

If you get the opportunity, go there. It's a really neat museum!

I don't know! I could put up with the '37 PU grill, even though the 33/34 grill is the most beautiful of the '30's grills to me but, tear dropping the roof line.............?

Chop it all you want but, changing the Vicky shape, is way to much for me.

Yeah, the roofline on that Vicky was a real failure in execution.
