A Lanester always pays his debts.

??  Please elucidate.

Well, Stan came up with "Lanester" and Ray came up with "Lanester Coupe" and you're copywriting it, so someone is owed a beer somewhere in there.  And then some wee group of cells in my brain went to Game of Thrones...Lanester/Lannister.. and, well, you got it now.

You know how you always want something you don't have? Well a year ago or so, I began noticing some early sixties 356 cars done up right. Also, I thought it would be kinda cool to have a car representing your birth year. Bottom line, I want your car bad ...cutface1 I mean really bad!

There’s something intriguing about owning a car representing ones birth year. I’m envious of those that are able to participate in that “exercise” and drive an amazing car. 
Unfortunately for me, I’m not into screaming chickenhawks or Cartier Lincoln’s. 1977 wasn’t exactly a banner year for the automotive industry.

Well that may be true but when I think of the automobiles today, there is absolutely nothing that gets me excited to go out and drive. I mean they only are DDs and do the job but excitement... well no. nada. bli, nothing, rien du tout. 

I have that problem every time I get a new or newer car. Nothing really excites me that suits what I need for work and weekends/lifestyle.

@ALB, actually this was in the middle of my 30-year Speedster build. So, the Speedster was the first.  This was one of the distractions that made the Speedster build take so long.

There was a company in Michigan that did Fiero re-bodies and sold them back through Pontiac dealers.  They built 247 of them before Ferrari got after them. This one originally belonged to the owner of the company and I got it with 1500 miles.

It had the Fiero V-6.  After a while, I put a Northstar engine in it.  So, it had more power than a real 308.  Kind like our Speedsters having more power than an original Speedster.

Problem is I can’t really grow I mustache. And I’d never wear a Dodgers hat. 🤣

Spoke to Carey a bit yesterday about the manuals I'll be doing for them and he tells me that the body is in final primer and being blocked for paint.  They're also about ready to laminate in the dash.  Once paint is done the final assembly will begin.  Still have a ways to go, but it's moving along in the right direction.  The Kiawah show in mid-April will be tight, but is still possible.  I hope so since I've optimistically registered again.  Certainly we'll have it by Carlisle.
