I have never seen it at the museum so it must be someone who has a hangar at the airport or an airport pass to get through the gates. I agree that it's a nice car.

Wheels - THANK you for continuously posting this great information. I've been quite homesick lately and am thinking about a trip to the Homeland of SoCal with my son around the end of this month, just him and me fartin' around the old stomping grounds and having fun before maybe driving up the coast. Would be cool to see some of this stuff.

I am glad to see that you are enjoying the thread. If you do decide to make the trip to SoCal let me know and maybe we can do a meet and greet. Smile
I volunteer at the PoF museum on Saturdays so you can find me there too.
