Spring Fling is coming up on April 8-9. Only about a month away. I will be bringing my '58 Coronet this time. There are a number of other events before and after the show so check out the website here if you are interested.

I just booked my flight to LAX tomorrow morning. It has been too many years since I was there last and I miss it. I especially look forward to meeting Aaron, so I hope he will be there on Saturday. I will only be able to be there Saturday through early afternoon. I have a 60 Matador wagon similar to his 60 Polara wagon. Plus If I have the story correct, his dad bought my 1942 New Yorker convertible a few years back.

I should be there on Saturday. Dad had two '42 New Yorker Convertibles. One was so rusty that the only intact part was the cowl. The other was painted blue and needed a restoration, but a decent starting point. That car turned out to be the Victory Special -- a one-off factory custom that was built for parade use and support the war bond effort. It was originally white with a red white and blue interior. I did a ton of research on the car. The '42 NY convertible pictured in the 70 years of Chrysler book is that very car. Dad still has it... and a truckload of NOS parts to finish it up.
