Beautiful cars! I'd love to have a split window coupe, but they didn't make them in my size.

I had a 1966 coupe in Mosport with 427/390, 4 speed, A/C, ps, pb, pw, teak, tele, trans ignition, repo KOs and SE. I LOVED that color. Sold it to a guy in Maui in 1993.

Now THAT'S impressive! My budget won't allow for such high end machinery. If I really stretch my dough, I might be able to install something like this...

Your welcome.
I am not much of a picture taker either. Very seldom do I look for a good setting. Most pictures of my cars are taken in my driveway or on the cul-de-sac street in front of my 40 year old house/neighborhood.
