The Lunch Car
V-8 – 75 HP – 2Bbl Carb.
Few things in life are treasured as much as great friends and old cars.
The Late Mark Trimble was my friend for 50 years. We were only 12 years
apart chronologically, but his wisdom went way beyond that.
There were two traditions that spanned that 50 years, the 9A.M. poker
game that could cost you fifty cents (originally a soda) and sometimes
dignitaries would join us, sometimes just the guys. The other was lunch,
where 4 or 5 of us would jump in a car and find something to eat.
Now, we could have taken a Packard Phaeton, 30’s Cadillac, Kaiser
or any number of cars. Those didn’t make you laugh. This did.
If you don’t get it, never mind. If you want to check numbers, mills
of paint, correct anything, you don’t get it.
Rebuilt engine, transmission, differential suspension and brakes.
