How long will it take for someone to find the key photo and know why I don't want the Mustang for myself?

It needs tires and the hubcaps were original... looked better than black stock wheels... but I'm staying with that look and just bought a decent set off of eBay. The tires on it, I had mounted to be able to move it around nearly 14 years ago and are rock hard. Even lowering the pressure didn't help much.

Repop nice quality hubcaps with new center caps run about $500. I'll have a $100 in the ones I have. If I sell it, the new owner will rip them off in a NY minute anyway.

This was mine in 1962. Started building it in 1959.It morphed thru 4 different configurations over the years.I still have it,sitting way back in the corner of my shop.Started buying parts to re-do the old girl acouple years ago,but because of my my back/neck injurys nothing has happened exept acumulate parts.Haveing a surgery done in 3 weeks that should help that,but then it will be time to retrieve the 315 from the factory and it seems that nothing gets done in summer that doesnt involve the camping/trailer.

Thank you.It looks a lot different now.50 yrs of sitting in the barn dulled her down a bit! That is the 2nd version of the car as well. Its in its 4th (and likey last) version now.

Its a 28 chevy,and that car was all original steel.Shortly after that show I dismantled the entire car and used the original sheet metal to build molds/tooling in order to reproduce the entire car in fiberglass.In the process I also built and entirely new frame with a 3 link coil rear and A arm coil front.Long story made short,I got it in paint,assembled all the electrical finished (electric doors,deck lid,power windows) and got a factory ride in a 1962 Pontiac Super Duty SS stock (430",dual quads,aluminum front end,light wieght frame).I ran that untill Pontiac pulled out of raceing in 1964,then discovered drag boats. So the car got set aside in the barn,and just sat there untill 2 yrs ago when I sort of rediscovered it and brought it to our new place.I started buying parts and intended to build it as a sort of "survivor" car,but with chassis upgrades.An old back injury resurfaced,and untill or if, I can get that resolved,I'm going to have to be happy just camping with the 315.

Might plan an Alaskan cruise if timing works out.

WW,
I agree that we need to keep the memories with the kids. The bike rides will come in due time. My DW loves to the bike rides as much as I do, so I know we will head out west again in the future with the bike...

As for the suggested NP's, I'm afraid those will have to be another trip. We are trying to get to Cody but not sure if we can make that on this trip.

Looking forward to the days when I don't have to rush back to work and just stay camping for as long as I want.

P.S. Love the pictures of all the nice cars. Nice bonus to see them...

PH,
I think the bike is out for this trip but we will back to Yellowstone (and other western NP's...) in the future with the bike. That is for sure...

We are busy filling up our 2016 "trips" as well. Many more with the camper this year vs years past. But still have a few "flying" trips we need to make for family events (i.e. 21st b-days in Vegas for nephew and niece...).

Here's to wishing everyone a wonderful & safe camping season...
