Oh, and in case you are wondering, it has to be Calypso Coral because that is what my dad bought new in 1970. My mom drove us around in it during the week, my dad raced it at local race drag strip during weekends. He did great winning a bunch of trophies. My mom hated it when my dad did not "de-tune" it from the race weekends and it would stall on her. Ihave some great pics of them with car during that time.
I was crushed when he sold it in the mid 1970's. He used to take me to the gas station where the guy who bought it worked after my dad sold it.
Through the years I did buy a few rust heaps that I had dreams of restoring, but circumstances always forced a sale. Now I have givien up on dream of restoring one, but I would like to have the shell.
My dad died in 2008 and it has been very difficult having lost him. So when I get one, I am going to drive it through the cemetery on the trailer to "show" him. He'd think that was neat. I'll probably drive it through cemetery where my mom is too. She did not much care about the car, but she always felt bad for me because he sold it because she wanted a car with a/c.
