Pleased To Meet You Again


No need to tip your hat…but I’m glad you did.


Here’s the 59 Ford Skyliner at Big Al’s today. Glad they left the top half up as it let me see the cable mechanism of the latch actuators. Funny how you miss seeing details that are right out in front of you at other times.


The Skyliner is of even more interest to me now that I’ve have acquired a 1:18 scale model of it. The wonderful thing is that the Chinese manufacturers of the die-cast model have put the same raising and lowering mechanism into it. I can pop the boot lid and manually erect the top into place. It is the kind of detail that endears the thing to the collector.


Even though Big Al’s was speckled shade and difficult light, at least it was cooler than Gillam Drive.
