Hi Roger,

My name is Don Scobee. I was looking at the Car Nut web site (which I frequent often) and saw the 1976 Fundamentals Car Show. I was surprised when I opened it to see my old 1962 Dodge Lancer 4dr Station Wagon. The little girl playing under the tailgate is my youngest daughter Kristen who is now 37 years old. She was 4 then and now has a 4 year old daughter who looks just like she did then. I believe the show was on Father's Day 1976 at the old Diamond Inn out west by the airport. The motel was torn down a few years ago.

That old car was given to me by my father-in-law (at the time) because when he went to buy a new Buick they didn't even want it as a trade-in. It had somewhat different lines to it so I started stripping chrome etc. The picture was after I had finished it and drove it a year or two. I put a later model 225 cu.in.slant 6 in it, redid the interior and painted it Corvette Ontario (Metallic) Orange. The transmission still had the push-buttons on the dash. It turned quite a few heads at the time. I don't know if they liked it or just wondered what in the heck it was. Sorry for going on so but I just needed to tell some one "that was my car"! Thank you for putting it in Car Nut. Is there any way to get a more clear picture of it? It is a little fuzzy on my computer screen.

Don Scobee
