my father in law was paying attention over the last few weeks. it seems he immediately came up with an oldie-but-a-goodie just down the street from his house. the mrs and i drove around the corner to look at it, but it wasn't there.
never fear. he shot this photo of the newport custom. it appears to be in incredible condition, evidenced by the obviously superior digital camera. i'm not sure how this comes out on blogger, but i can zoom in to read the script very clearly on the front fender. there are other photos, particularly a rear end shot that shows more of the pristine condition this old monster is in. i'll post that one when i'm not being paged for service hear at home.
