Didn't I point out this car (I said a 1962 Dodge Dart)in a previous EV Grieve post not too long ago?

Great shot and a cool car! Whatever happened to EV Lambo?

Nice paint. I believe it's a '63, I owned one of these in '76 for a while when briefly living out West. It had a pushbutton transmission and no A/C.

Wow. My best friend in high school had a '63 that was exactly this same color. Only diference was that the original color had been a pukey aquamarine, so we painted over the old paint, rust and a half-assed Bondo application with this color blue. Did the whole thing with two 6 inch clapboard brushes in about 2 hours. Never could get it to shine much though.

I think the owner of the car is the owner of Snack Dragon.

Yes, it is indeed owned by the owner of Snack Dragon.

My first car was a '66 with all red leather interior. I had to sit on a pillow because I couldn't see over the huge steering wheel. ahhh the memories

As I previously commented re the November photo Crazy Eddie mentioned, it's a first generation (1960-1962) Plymouth Valiant.

For proof, see the photos in the Wikipedia entry for Plymouth Valiant:

Do I get a prize? Who's the judge? Gruber MacDonald?
