  1. Welcome from Illinois! That is a very nice car!
  2. Use a convertible top switch knob. I believe this video was from a member on here. I’d contact Don at OMS for the switch.
  3. This is like de ja vu for me looking at your recent pics. Not very many Grabber Blue 71 convertibles out there. As my friend who painted it said: “you won’t lose this in a parking lot.”
  4. Very cool stories! We have a similar place outside of Chicago where they moved CP1 the first nuclear reactor that they built at the university of Chicago. The government bought 1000+ acres in the middle of a very wooded, hilly and secluded area. They moved the reactor there, experimented, and built a 2nd reactor. They called the area Argonne and then kept that name when they moved to another area and built Argonne National Lab. The best part is that you can go there today and walk the trails back to where it was deep in the woods. There are some stone markers to indicate what was once there but not much else. If you look for the trails less travelled, you’ll run into some old foundations and chain link fencing with barbed wire. And if you’re wondering - they just buried everything there and it is all still buried. It’s carefully monitored and safe to visit. That is if you know where to go lol! I don’t think many people know of its existence much less the role it played almost 80 years ago. There are no signs saying that it is there, just the stone markers in the woods. Google Red Gate Woods Palos, Chicago Pile 1, 2, or 3 or Site A.
  5. Welcome from Illinois! Very nice car!

  12. In college (while driving my 69 Mach) a friend needed to sell his car and made me a terrific offer to buy his 69 Yenko Nova...which I turned down.
  13. Very nice looking car. My 71 was also a Stock order but at the other end of the spectrum with almost no options.
  14. Welcome from Illinois! Very nice collection you have there.

  18. David, I’m glad you’re doing well. And do try to take it easy for a few days - just like your dog, the car will be waiting for you.
