God bless the good folks that spend many hours of their time and a lot of bucks to revive an old treasure that is enjoyed by all.

We all do not thank you enough. I have a 1929 Buick Tailight assy. a bezel from an 1928 chevvy with the bow tie (glass filled) and the indianapolis wings with the wheel in the center of the wings. and a complete antenna roof mount radio antenna that folds down to clear the garage door for a 1948 buick. Can be had for the dedicated collector looking for any of those three items. Just my way of saying thanks to the "good folks"

Hey, everyone has their favorite era vehicles! Thirties, Forties, Fifties, Sixties -- each has its fan base. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder (or driver). No point in putting down those who enjoy a different era -- as if YOUR era is the RIGHT ERA.

My preference is for 1960s muscle cars -- but I respect the thousands of hours invested in Duesenbergs and other old-timers restored to perfection. Sometimes a seller can make out like a bandit -- and sometimes he invests $20,000 and 20,000 hours and then sells for $20,000. It is NOT a sound & logical investment -- but neither is sky diving, building Experimental aircraft, nor those unfortunate times those two coincide!

A story about a junkyard being sold. Now that's some hard-hitting journalism!
This is what is called a Human Interest Story. It is for those who tire of seeing nothing in the paper but the latest gang rapes, bank heists, and drug deals gone bad -- and that is just the Legislative coverage!
