My husband, Alden, and I went to a Good Guys Rod Show in Del Mar CA in March 2013. After leaving our friends Kim and Steve Myers in Canyon Lake CA we drove up the coast to visit our brother-in-law John who lives in Palo Alto. This picture was taken on the coastline just before we got into San Francisco, He got this car (shell only) in 1969. He tells people he has had the car longer than he has had me. We will be married 46 years in July. For years he was not able to work on it because of the girls (3 of them). Putting them through high school, then the oldest went to Hastings College in Nebraska. Then about 1997 he was able to start putting it together, Needless to say his birthday, Fathers' Day and Christmas presents consisted of parts for the car. He finally got it put together and painted for the Colorado National Good Guys Show in Ft Collins, CO in 2007. It was our granddaughters first car show at the age of three weeks. Lyllyan is now 11 and had been to 15 car shows with us. This is his pride and joy and he loves to drive the Purple Ogre. Oh by the way he won the Long Distance Award for driving over 1456 miles one way in March 2013. This car had been to shows in California, Colorado, Texas, South Dakota and Nebraska.
