Nice car and nice family - look after all of them!

(And I'm jealous of the car and the weather)

Lucky devil.

I like where your side mirrors are mounted.


Weatherman is calling for 14+ inches of snow starting this afternoon....and high winds. An actual "blizzard" is on tap.

But then at least we dont have too many wild-fires, mud-slides, or earthquakes up here

John
Where did you get the top side mirrors and how are they mounted. I like them do they help seeing your rear end

Default Mr Byers ragtop!

Wow, that is some ride!
I found a 60 with a spotlight parked on some land in northern NM out in the middle of nowhere about 2 weeks ago. I took a couple of pix cuz I thought the spotlight was unique. I'll put them on a new thread. I also got a picture of the VIN and id plate. I had to stop at the house/store and ask the guy for his contact info - he did say he would like to sell it.

Thanks for all the compliments !!!

In answer to questions etc;

Mirr's were on ebay. I just att them to the wings in the wing wdo's. They have set screws. No drilling.
I really just did it to have a mirr on the rh side, but it doesn't really work. The angle is wrong and you can only see the lwr 1/2. Actually, I just removed them. The spot light came on the car. Installed by Byers Mtr Co (Gilroy Calif)

Traxxas, where did you go to college?
This car's been in San Jose since day one.

It IS cool for a kid. Justin isn't a car or motorcycle guy (yet)
But as you guys remember, I grew up with this car too. I can still remember my dad taking us everywhere. Disneyland twice, Lake Tahoe a dozen times, plus hauling my Scout troop, and it was his every day work car for 30 yrs. Probl why it has 300K miles.

I've posted it before, but the att pic is me & my mom taken I'd guess around 1964?? So I was around 4 yrs old?

Thanks again for all the nice comments !!!
