  • David Bonvillain ~ villian & his 1960 Squarebird!

    Dave has had this to say, after sending me a pic of what his 1960 Golde Top engine bay looks like now! He said he should have a video to post of how it sounds once they get it running...

    "After almost 3.5yrs (unreal...no way would I have done this had I realized what it would take), it’s finally supposed to fire up on Tuesday next week. Dave"

      David, thanks for posting the picture! I thought it had posted, but I see that it failed to do so when I posted!

                David fixed the audio portion of the video! Now you can hear what it sounds like! Thanks, David!

                  David is close to having his fantastic Golde Top back on the road again after a lot of great upgrades being done to it. He was looking for a missing interior part and contacted me regarding it. So I put my Bloodhound Nose to the trail and came up with one for him quickly and he got it! Then, I decided to take a rest... Until the next search comes up! I am a little exhausted, at 83 years of age (about 12 in dog years, as I recall. According to science, the average life of a dog is 10-13 years, depending on the breed and size). From all the searching I did to find another of our members his left front Squarebird fender. They are hard to find in good condition.

                      David just sent me more pix and also said that tomorrow he will be road testing that engine and the car.I know he has to be excited about that, after all this time. Look closely at the new gauges! I like them! Here are the pix and hopefully, his testing will prove out everything!

                          David said "It Lives"! and "It drove today - I should have it in a week:" Here are the 3 pix he sent me of her.
