    Didn’t make it out there Saturday. Combination of not getting the car done in time and gout killing my big toe. I snuck out on Sunday and if you time it right you can park right up front. I couldn’t walk too far but I got some good pics of the up close stuff on the way to the swap meet.

    This was really nice. Not too many around & I always liked that long version of the slap stik shifter.

    Swap meet was wiped out by a broken water pipe.

    This sad shell was $600.

    At least it came with an interior kit.

    That’s all brother. I just couldn’t hobble around any more than that. Sure glad they parked the C’s up front.

    I believe Jay Leno's chief paint and body guy, Per Blixt, owns that 300D, or one just like it. It appears to have a working Electrojector fuel system, or at least a newer style one maybe adapted to run the engine (as best I know there is only one original Electrojector system (and it too has some updated parts on it) that is operational, and that is on a 1958 Desoto Adventurer convertible - a brilliant restoration. I don't recall seeing that system at past shows if it is indeed Per's car.

    I missed going this year due to unforeseen circumstances. It looks like it was one of the better turn outs of cars I have not seen before there. Thanks for sharing. Very cool photos.

    Bob Baker (ABC Moparts) sent me a photo of that car while he was at the show. It is a very nice body of a 1971 Chrysler Newport.

    Thanks. I think you’re correct. I swear I saw it on an episode of Jay Leno’s garage.

    It was packed on Sunday and I went about 12:45 pretty much over so I could park in the lot. It must’ve been awesome at prime time on Saturday.

    Thanks for the pictures, looks like a nice show.
    That cheap coupe shell looked very solid.
    Love the license plate on that Polara patrol car.

    You know, if a kid with a magic marker did this, he'd be dead.

    Great pics thanks for sharing. It’s a little early here for outdoor shows but it’s coming. Here is what I woke up to yesterday. It’s all gone now but is still disheartening.
