I have met the thieves

I would like to paraphrase Pogo, the 1950's and 60's political satirist, when he said "We have met the enemy and he is us.

In paraphrasing I would like to say "I have met the thief and he is me".

Yes, It was me who was taking all the parts off of that 41 ford and then finally taking the entire car over to Jack Yale's place to continue restoring it as a old time Sheriff's black and white patrol car.

I was going to continue working on it in my carport, however my wife threatened to hang a sign on saying WHITE ELEPHANT FOR SALE.

This is a great blog.Many years ago there was a display of cars in our city. I saw a 1933 Phantom ll Rolls Royce. Since then,I always thought that antique cars were neat.They had style.
In your June 21 post you described a 1934 Caddy as having 'suicide doors'
Why were they called that?
