Are they going to be sitting in the rear seats or will they try to sit between the top of the seats and trunk? I know some folks have built a wooden structure to allow folks to sit there, just asking since would hate for someone to sit there with no support. Thats what I would worry about if my convertible car was going to be in a parade and folks sitting in the back. Maybe its just me??
That is a GoRgEoUs car !
I'm going to restore a NmB car with my younger son.
Story time... I've had MyFirstCar since 1992, and got married in 1999. Left our wedding in it. Wife asked me if I would ever consider trading it for a motorcycle... NO. Later that year she reluctantly drove it to work one beautiful day while did some maintenance and detailed her 97 Cougar (also a nice ride). She came home that afternoon, tears in her eyes, asking, pleading, PLEASE don't be mad at her...some doofus fell off his bike while she was stopped at a traffic light and his handlebar scraped the paint about 6" right by the passenger door handle. Kissed the wife, touched up the paint as best I could, it's still there today, and I'm still married. It's a driver...
It is Caspian blue. You can't tell from the picture, but I installed dual redline tires on it a couple of years ago and they really pop against the blue. My buddy has a 67 malibu SS and he liked the look of the redlines so much he installed them on his car - single redlines though.
I just watched a video of the parade - couple of newer corvette convertibles, newer pickup trucks????, couple porsche boxters, new audi convertible, new camaro covertible, new mustang convertible, 68 GTO, and my 65. What has happened to all the old cars???
The best part of the parade for me, was my wife finally admitted she doesn't like the 3spd manual. I had planned to change to a T5 when I dropped the built 306 in it, but ran out of steam. So my winter project - T5 swap!!!!
