I got a chance to see the '55 in person. The show series runs in Detroit where it won the riddler then one of the next places the show goes is Chicago, I got a chance to see it there. It is amazing.

Hi,

yeah agree on the worst bird in the world for sure it's a dog!

The 55'; not sure on the big wagon wheels on a car like that either, but you can see they spent heap of $$ on it. Must have been good seeing it in person?

Thanks for the links. I love you

Hi Vic
Great to have some American input in the Forum, After all you guys did give us these great machines, Just think if we didn't have these we'd all be driving FJ Holdens or Austin A30's
Thank God for the American car industry.
