Went to a pretty big (for my area) car show today (in Port Coquitlam BC). Lots of cars (over 500 (but I heard 900 so who know)). Range of ages and races in the crowd. All car lovers so who cares.

One 55-61 Forward Look car, a 1956 Canadian Custom Royal sedan (with the 303 Plymouth engine)).

A couple of older (1938/39 Dodges and Plymouths).

Many GM and Fords some Mopars.

Just when I thought I had seen all the variations of air cleaners for the '55-'56 cars, here comes another. I've never seen a lid that was rounded up like that one. Was that a Canadian thing?

That's a very nice Orange and White 1959 De Soto. That would be the car for me. No doubt there is a fascinating story of how the Swede had a rust bucket (a diamond in the rough) shipped over to Sweden and, with his old world skills, turned it back into a diamond again. It's amazing what the Swedes can do with a FWL car.

When visiting years ago, I asked Arne, "Why finned American cars ?". He seemed to
not understand the question, so I asked "Why not Volvos ?". His response was priceless
and totally changed the way I see old cars ....

First, he wrinkled up his face and made some disparaging comment like "Why don't YOU
restore old Volvos ?", implying "We do finned American cars for the same reason you do,
because Volvos suck !"

But the real eye opener was the reason behind "Why do it at all ?" .... which (and I para-
phrase here), "We have 8 months of winter in Sweden and 4 months of nice weather ... what
better way to spend your time during those cold, snowed-in winter months than holed up in
a nice shop, welding and painting and making an old car nice, so that when summer rolls
around again, you can go driving around and enjoy it ? !!!"

I found that answer to be quite profound, and immediately reset my thinking to build a
really nice shop to hole up in during our all-too-long and cold winters.

Went to the Langley BC Goodtimes Cruise In (and Show) yesterday. Huge for this area. Probably 2 miles of street/highway blocked off. Took 2 hours to stroll the show. I put over 10,000 steps on my Fitbit. Lots of very nice cars out of the 1000+?? there.

Two Forward Looks (I drove my 56 Dodge there but did not show it).

Here they are:

I see a few folks looking at that beautiful 59 Dodge there. One of the many things I love about FL cars, they attract folks mainly because you just don't see them everyday. Now compare that to say 57 Chevys, I see at least 1 at every car show.
For example, to prove that people are attracted to rare cars, I keep my Belvedere at a public garage so I get a lot of passerbys. The ones that drive by that at least have an appreciation for cars stop to look and ask about it. I've had a few ask what it is and think its cool cause they've never seen the type of car before. Most just say cool car, etc. I think its funny as my car isn't a showpiece, and the first thing one sees as I have my car facing outward is the funky green fenders on a brown car, but people still think its cool because you just don't see them a whole lot.

MoPars on The Mississippi two weeks ago with 295+ cars (all Chrysler or related) on display.
I could count the finned cars on one hand and one of them was my F.
