It's a beauty! Sadly, cars of this era receive little recognition or respect.

I agree with you.  Perhaps some of the reason for that is the generation that would remember them fondly, is both old and deceased.  I'm guessing the cars of our era will some day meet that same fate.

I can and will always hope that the younger generations will catch on to the importance of these fabulous makes. I am encouraged by the number of younger enthusiasts that I see at car shows and museums. I continue to do my part and share these makes with my grandchildren as I did with my sons. Every little bit can do nothing but help. It would be a shame to see them find their only presence in a museum.

Yes John. While most of these cars are now on museum floors, this one was being driven. The owner lives near Guelph in Ontario and had driven a few hundred kilometres to get to this photo location.

Cars like this are part of out heritage and we all need exposure to them so that we can appreciate.
