The new pics on the main page are up.  These will run for 2 months now, with the next update likely around February 1. 

Please consider submitting pics and information about your car for possible inclusion as a "Feature Car".  If we don't get any more submissions by late January, we may quit doing these.

Thanks!

Nice cars posted. In a few months I will have paint, mine's not worthy to submit as it sits now. Bummer you aren't getting more submissions.

x2. You took the words right out of my mouth.

mine's not worthy to submit as it sits now.
A 69 Camaro that's not worthy? I think not...

Thanks guys..  He had a small trailer he used to pull on occasion either to get a load of gravel or lumber or whatever..  The car use used like any normal car back in the day..  He just left the hitch on it up until the 90's.  I still have the hitch and the trailer in behind the garage and hasn't moved in 30 years..  I agree people need to submit!!  Lets keep this going!!

I am hoping if we can keep this going, Bentley will be a future feature of the month, Although Gary has owned his since the 70's and probably has some good pics from BITD. I would also nominate Bill Ohio, while he hasn't owned it that long, his car has some cool history, and some good original pics.
 I know there are guys who fit the bill for this page....

I mean no disrespect to/for Tim's '67 or the owner of the '68, both are beautiful cars..  BUT...  I *really* enjoyed reading the detail/background/history of Bentley's '69.. (much better than just another photo in my opinion)..  Congrats Bentley.. and Thanks for taking the time to write it up for all of us to enjoy~

Pretty neat.   Looks like Mike's COPO parked behind you.

A collective thank you ;) to the kind words and encouragement.

Good eyes Larry. I hang out with them, Mike, your dad, along with Tony Stephens' COPO from Hopkins Chev. That pic was at the Pumpkin Run you may have guessed?

Yeah looked like the Pumpkin run.  Sure miss that show.  We are scheduling to make the trip out just for that show and see all my buddies you just mentioned.  I just saw Mike about 2 months ago, glad to see he's doing good.  I was sad to hear his mom and dad have passed away. His dad was a hoot.  I've ridden in that COPO a few times and have known it, and Mike since the mid 70's, so I'd recognize it anywhere.  Mikes a real good guy.   I could tell some stories about that car, lol.
   I haven't heard from Tony in a while, but I stored his COPO in my garage and worked on it for him years ago, even took it out for a spin with my son riding shotgun.  Tony is another really good guy.   Those are 2 guys that are lucky to have as friends, and not the type you would expect to own COPO's, and drive them like they do.   Laid back and not into all that goofy-ness when it comes to those cars that you normally see (if you know them you know what I mean)  ;)
