Talking about that, the garage that had a couple "big fender" cars at the bottom of First Ave still around?

You know that one of the cars was a rare German ford? 1936 I believe.
The one his father use to drive was a " baby " ford. The model y.

What struck me was how HUGE those cars were those things looked unreal when I went to look at them. On my street (Queen's Ave) there were 2 Kingswood wagons a grey that I think is still there and a burgundy opposite that belonged to a guy who worked trucks on the port, he ended up buying a beautiful metallic green Statesman De Ville with a white roof and white interior on BBS rims that supposedly came from Australia at an auction on the port around 1986, lawd that car was a dream, only used to come out for weddings and"functions"

when i see all the beauties hiding in plain sight it gives me motivation to do an Old School, Classics and Antiques show ONLY...I've been talking with Dennis Gage of My Classic Car and think he might finally make the trip here next year.

Check this 56 Chev out...been in a garage in Elerslie Park since the owner died many years ago...family now wants to sell it but are a bit disillusioned about its actual worth

about 7 years ago me and a few of my guys cleaned a few of them up and took them by wrecker over to Bhagwansinghs for our first ever big show....they werent working back then. I told him that he needed to move them out from that damp extremely low roofed shed or they would start to rot from the inside out....maybe he may part with a few of them now.

Yeah boy yah real old LOL..

MGman, I was never able to pull a certified copy because my time in Trinidad is usually on the weekend only. I posted the pic here in hopes of another rotary man recognizing the plate number. This car will look great next to my Rx3 & Rx7, and it will mean a lot to my old man if we found it.

**Update** Today I had a friend call his connections in LO, and the plate number is not coming up in their system.

normal bs with them.
i trying to get them to 'find' one for me that i transferred in sando 'the legal way' a few yrs now [probably a decade by now :/].
i have the cert copy we used for the transfer with the chits and all.
every time i get a lil time to pass is same rhetoric 'check pos/sando' depending on which one i in at the time.
for the life of me i cant understand why they cant do a new one. all the info on d old cert...
