David,
Yep, the Nut Tree. I flew in there a few times.
It appears you are partial to yellow!

Tell us about the driving lights on the 52. I really like those, how they appear to "fit" the body work.

They are 'body mounted' lights. Made by hella, type 110 I believe. They were available for A cars as well. They mount on brackets that are welded to the spare tire well.
