Jack's poster child of an ideal owner, when asked how often he checks the oil, the answer is before every drive. The car is originally his girlfriend's, now wife, who bought it back in the early 70's and held onto it.

Cool 57 outlaw, check out the Carrera style rear valance without cooling slots. It's mounted to the bumper for easy removal and no welding on the body. The wheels are Hotrod by Boyd Rudge style.

Was just there Friday from AZ. Saw the car, but no sharks. Stepson went surfing Saturday AM anyway and was not alone.
