Fw: [GFS] Morris Model



Golden Fin Society - http://clubs.hemmings.com/goldenfin/

Jack,

Just in case I miss Spring Fling with my 56 FURY, the next target date is
June in UTAH.  I have three months to go till April.  Luckily this is a
LEAP
YEAR and I have that infamous "extra day" to get her ready.  With
everything
I have placed on the car so far, I still have a "TON" of stuff to finish
up
on.

I have heard from Richard Main and he is thinking about driving down from
Northern California with at least one of his Furys.  If he can make it to
Pomona Swap Meet, he can make it to Van Nuys.  This years Spring Fling is
a
2-day event.  Saturday is a Show and Shine with a parts exchange area.
Sunday is the Judging with the parts exchange area.  A first in the
history
of the show.  We just need a commitment from a 57 owner to show up and we
will have solid club representation.

Jay Leno always shows up with some car.  Never for judging though.  Last
year he finally drove a Chrysler product, a late 50's Imperial.  Richard
Carpenter brings at least one.  We have seen his 60 300F most recently
which
took Best of Show.  If you like the Winged Warriors of the 70's, about 6
Superbirds/Daytonas are expected.  When was the last time you saw one of
those in person?

Jack, I'll dig out some photos and send them to you for the next issue.

ED

recall,
