I'm a bit partial to those - my father-in-law had a red 4-cyl one. Now my husband's cousin owns it to keep it in the family - he's a Porsche guy anyway, so this was a bonus. My husband's stepmother didn't want it in the garage after my FIL passed away.

I happened upon an interesting collection the other day.

there was a guy in my home town of Sanford ,Maine that had one of the most obscure car collections in the US when I was a teen. He owned a company that built and installed the bleachers in all your major stadiums. But I have no idea if he is still alive or as to what may have happened to his collection.

I would not have expected one that nice in NH. To be honest, there's not one that nice down here in MD.

Though there is a 2-dr in olive green with white top that's older than that one and absolutely pristine (all original paint), I think it came here from the southwest.

They just bought it, had a third row installed, looked like fresh suspension, had the stickers made custom. Probably had someone take it all apart, replace anything suspect, full detail etc. It's just a rig for errands....
