Just A Quick Note…

As I type this, some amazing food is cooking in my folks’ kitchen, and in just a bit it will be time for a cocktail. The temperature is remarkably nice for northwest Illinois on this Christmas afternoon. I washed the car in the driveway yesterday, something that has never happened before on Christmas Eve.

Wishing all the readers and contributors a very Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, or Wednesday afternoon, as the case may be. And thanks to Jack, for indulging my yakking about old land yachts, right here on RG. Cheers!

    Tom, seems you and I were both a Brooksfield in 2015 for the Grand National. Now the question is, how did you miss my Crystal Blue Firemist Talisman. I know my assigned parking space was across and to the right of that beautiful Green 74 Eldorado… You must have been overcome with the neon green… 🙂 🙂
    That red 1967/68 (not sure which with out seeing the interior) was flat out done to the 9’s. I think it won 1st Place Primary. It has not been to a GN sense….
    Next GN in Kansas City in June of 2020, look for a Jennifer Blue 75 SDV or a Calimet Cream Eldorado ELC… Brougham on…..

      Oh, I have pictures of your car too! In fact, it was one of the first cars I saw. I went into the Sheraton to get sunblock, and came out the front entrance, and there was the Talisman, along with a really nice Rosewood ’75 Sedan de Ville. I took over 500 pictures that day! Several friends in the CLC were there too, Ron Schweitzer, Lauren Schweitzer, Jim Jordan and Bill Buckingham.

      But I selected these two due to their Christmas colors. 🙂
