Cool Mike, grab it! Can you spell KEGERATOR!
Prince Edward Island'64 Parisienne CS "barn find" - last on the road in '86 ... Owner Protection Plan booklet, original paint, original near-mint aqua interior, original aqua GM floor mats, original 283, factory posi, and original rust.
I would hate to see anything this cool (heh heh) going to the dump. Can't use it myself though.
If anybody really wants it I could probably pick it up and hold it. It about a three hour one way drive from me.

Or you could remove the Emblems and send to me (I will pay too much for shipping)
funny storey - about 20 + years ago I was shopping with an old girlfriend in Niagara On The Lake , there was a store with a whole selection of fridge magnets (I had no idea they were on a fridge door) so I see this really cool one that says GM Frigidaire so figuring I'd buy it I was trying to remove it, other magnets were actually falling but this one wouldn't come off ! the store owner let me know the red piece of metal was a fridge door ! and the emblem belonged to it - he wouldn't sell.
You know what I just did? Just phoned the guy and told him I was coming to get it. I guess he said he's had about 40 calls but no committment yet. I just can't pass it up especially with the potential for sprucing it up.
Am I crazy? Not sure.

What can I say Ken?
Thank me when you get it home

I dunno if I'll thank you! I'm weak and easily tempted so don't bring anything else to my attention puleeze! (OK maybe only small stuff.)

I really thought you were a lot closer to the fridge than 3 hours...
time will fly when you can listen to your 8 tracks on the way up and back.
If that fridge was here around here I would have snapped it up for that price.
I can see you doing a nice match of the fridge to your 66 GP
You're buttering me up nicely I must say. (especially with that picture) Ya know I could just keep it for you and you can come a get it one of these days maybe when you come up for my Lac la Biche Garages tour and midnight drive in allnighter on August 2nd! We could even listen to some quad eight tracks!

Who's buttering up who now...
I think your Lac la Biche Garage tour sounds like a lot of fun...and I am going to definitely try to make it.
As for the fridge, I think the 66 GP colour would be awesome, with some matching trim would make it a great garage addition.
I can already visualize it.
I would love to have it if you decide not to refurbish it....but if I match my 63 Parisienne........it will look like a.......white fridge or match the interior and make it black.
Still keeping an eye out for more 8 tracks...going to Record land one of these days to check what they have.
Thanks for the offer Ken.
Just let me kow if you want it and its yours (If I get there before the other 40 guys that called) i still owe ya.
As for Recordland about 2 years ago i spent about 2 hours carefully going though the tottering piles of eight track boxes and didn't find a single quad. I wonder if he got affected by the flood this summer?
Go get 'er Ken ... I wish it was here on PEI.
Isn't PEI mostly Scottish (if you get my drift?) so I figure they'd all still be in kitchens being used.

Yes, Scottish and Irish. Being used for "drinks" as the Scottish and Irish here are known for.
I think that might be the plan for this one as well. You mean this kind of thing by Drinks I assume.
Here's a home movie of me enjoying my hobby:
Well here's the one I got home last night for the price of a tank of gas and some real bad road coffee.
