RE: 1969 A-body but not a Beaumont (sorry)


Change a couple of trim pieces here and there and Voila ! instant Beaumont!
Then you wont have any guilt about being on a Poncho site !! lol...
On the other hand leave it be, very sweet car Carl.

Looking good there Carl. I was going to email you there the other day about it but lucky I didn't as I am sure Barbra checks those first and the news would be out. After you being married all those years there probably wouldn't be anything that would surprise her.

Thank you wink   

just today, a neighbor was asking, why I was not at the BIG car show in Goderich  (12 miles away)  

I said  I don't have a old car  (and the back biters there don't like Corvettes)  

Wife assured him, how pleased she was, I don't have a old car  

 Just what we need "Another old car" she bragged    

She's not a old car guy    I had the Strato Chief 4 years and she never sat in it    ditto for all the others....

With the family stresses keeping us very busy    

I probably won't insure the Corvette this year,  and the Chevelle will sit in nice dry storage... (its sat for the last 22 years )

Nice! Sorry you think you need to go. Should I go too since I don't have a Poncho? confuse


 Thought about this post when we went out for lunch Friday Todd.

That's why I was in the passenger seat when you came out of the house biggrin 

I hope you had fun driving !

You don't have to be a Poncho owner to be a Canadian Poncho lover. 

Hope you stick around too Carl.

I hope you keep it AND get it out this year too Carl. I haven't seen you actually since Plunketts when you still had the Chief. I'm planning on going to the Cruize-In and Bothwell. Hope you and car are at either or both!

Gary (Velle Addict) is a smart man wink   He knew when he sold it to me, I would take good care of it.........    

He knows I don't keep vehicles very long...  and he has the first dibs on a re-sale...  

So when he gets it back, all the things he didn't have time for will be done......rofl.gif

 

and new seat covers are on the way biggrin  (involved a trade )

Wow that car looks solid. Great improvements but you have to get rid of that license plate. You are no dummy, you are a smart guy.

 I guess I've just been called a DMF too many times, not so much lately though which is a good thing.  Might have been just a part of my youth.

Oh  now I see        

 

I was going to explain, that I was using the dealer tag, so I don't have to change it over, and pay 2000.00 tax  and  then lose that when I re-sell it in Aug.

 

But you were referring to the letters    whats a DMF ?    don't answer that !   I was just told   biggrin
