30 years ago  (May 7th), I bought my first wheels from Tom at Spring Carlisle.  I was fresh out of school and my Dad and I drove down from Canada.  He already owned a 40 chev and 39 Ford coupe at that point and we were both car buffs.  I spotted this beauty mid morning on Thursday and it was love at first site.  I had a ton of fun with that car but sadly, I didn’t keep it long and sold it within a couple of years to make room for another love in my life (to whom I’m still married :-)).

It was a great weekend shared with my Dad and it was a pleasure dealing with Tom that fine spring day.  I will remember it always.

I hope you folks are still enjoying the car game.
