Way to go--another long-term survivor (both you and the car!) reaching the half century mark.  My two are mere pups at 226k and 267k...And one of my favorite colors too!

thank you for the kind words

 

but just to be clear i haven't owned the car for all 50 years, i bought it sight unseen for some crazy mormom cult leader in southern utah 6 years ago on my lunch break while working at the studios in burbank

 

major highlights:

sold new in portland in dec 1970

engine rebuilt in 1978

painted in 1985

interior in 2014
