Most of our members are still not online, and I venture to say that most of them don't watch the auctions on cable, either.

How about writing up the results for the Newsletter. (Usually the Ds get all the ink!)

GM often junked their "dream cars". E.L. Cord had the notion of bringing this out as a production car. He apparently convinced GM to sell rather than junk. He bought one of the two prototypes and a bunch of spare parts. Never followed through, and car was later sold. (Hell of an investment!) Don't know if E.L. planned to call the car a Cord :-)

Bill Hummel replied the topic: F-88
My brother, Peter and I seem to remember a Corvette or similar car that showed up at Cordhaven in a lot of boxes. "Sir" never put it together. Was a F-88 Olds similar to a Corvette?

Is this the same car?
