    We had a '51 Chevy when I was growing up. The hood ornament looked like Chief Pontiac but the combination of cellphone screen & squinty eyes is problematic!

    So, about two weeks after I bought my Classic, last February, I had to go back by the guy's house to pick up a couple of items. He wanted to know if could get there before dark... I figured he wanted a little help with something outside, so I said "sure thing." Instead, when I got to the house, one of these was sitting in the driveway all warmed up and waiting for me to take it for a spin. Man, now that was the absolute icing on the cake to buying that Classic!

    No, I've not driven or see the car since. But, I do plan to try and buy it one day...
