Thanks again.

We won't be able to make the San Clemente rally unfortunately. For now we are trapped in the Province of BC due to a health issue but will expand our travel as soon as we are able.

As you can see by my avatar I use a '57 Pontiac wagon, the twin to the Chev Nomad. It makes an outstanding TV and suits our '51 Flying Cloud perfectly. I am a fan of vintage wagon TV's because they have sufficient weight and wheel base to handle a trailer. My buddy tows his trailers (he's now added the twin to my trailer) with a '54 Ford wagon. Both of us have upgraded the front brakes to disc, and better shocks all around.

We have had several corvettes over the years, all either first or third series. Would like to acquire a 63 but I'm currently up past my eyebrows with my '70 SS Chevelle for my wife. She intends to us it to tow the trailer from time to time but the wagon will continue to be the primary TV.

I will let you know if I hear of any TV's that might work. I see them from time to time on Craig's list. Recently there was a mid 60's Chrysler wagon with a 440 that was reasonable mileage, looked very good in the pictures, and was quite well priced. It was there for several weeks before it sold.

Hi ! and thanks for the welcome.

You are neighbors, and we shop at that Traders all the time. We are very excited about our first time rally, and also a bit scared about what to expect.

I love your picture of the frenchy is it yours? My daughter has one and I baby sit for it all the time, we also to go the frenchy club meetings at Laguna Beach dog park. My Grandpup is "Bonsi" and is black and white too.

Any way thanks for the note.
