Many of you are well aware of this car. It was my last ‘hot rod” before my macular degeneration got bad enough and had to get off the road. Well, something interesting happened last week. Through some messages and phone calls, an agreeable deal was struck between several people …I’ll let Cory Drake spill the beans on all parties involved (I was one of them). To keep it short, Jeni Drake and Cory Drake will soon be the new caretakers of my Ghia. I knew something right would come of this car and I am pleased as punch that the car is going to the right home where it will be nourished with the love it deservves.

Another important part of this transaction was our one and only rocket scientist amongst us, Kelly Frazer. I’ll let him pitch in on as much of this arrangement as he wants to.
So, once all the logistics are figured out, the red Ghia of mine will be residing in the brand new Man & Woman Cave near Gettysburg.
I will let Cory and Kelly give you as much info as they want. So, join me in congratulating the caretakers…it should be noted that this news was first announced in the FB page and many folks responded there with well wishes for all of us involved.
Cory has since arranged transportation by Mike Fincher from pick up here in Door County, WI to Mike’s shop near Bremen. Once there, Mike is going to attend tosome issues and once they are completed, it will delivered to Cory and Jeni. It is the intent thatthe car will replace Jeni’s beloved Mustang and this will become her new whip. She has some memories of her father’s K-G and as Cory keeps telling me she is tickled pink about all of this. I know the two of them don’t frequent these pages, but they are on the FB SOC page, find this same story there and offer your comgrats there AND sooner or later it’ll join the Hoopty and gawd knows what will happen. I only ask them NOT to install any dingle balls in the back window. Finally, I want to acknowledge my friend (RIP)  for building this for me, it couldn’t have been done without you.
