<p>Well you guys know I have a thing for old bicycles and old toys.&nbsp; Well yesterday I was driving by down town Oxnard in front of the theater. Its a downtown recreational store front with art and other cool stuff. They had a Schwinn "Lemon Peeler ", a Sears "Drag bike ", a cool looking drag bike designed by George Barrister sold by Iverson. There was one with redline tires sold by Raleigh as a chopper. Check out the pictures. If you have a chance drop by and take a look.

My brother in law just got this 1959 Chevy Brookwood wagon in from New York.The car is an original California built her in LA. It spent some time in Colorado and then made home in up state New York. My brother in law picked it up and got it trailered her to Oxnard.  Last night the truck showed up and it was time to unload. The guys had spent an hour trying to get the chains and straps off to unload the weight of the car. Finally they manage to get it down, I then wanted to get the car started. Drove it around the block and in to the garage. I wish I would have taken pictures when it was outside. Here's some in the garage, check out the stickers.

I got some time to spend on the 65 chevelle. I had the MSD box and coil to hook up. The radiator overflow needed to be mounted. For the ignition box I bent some sheet metal to cover were the battery used to sit. There was an ugly fender liner repair done and I needed to cover it up. The owner is going to replace the fender liner. The coil was mounted at the firewall next to the distributor. For the coolant catch can I bent up some aluminum tabs and riveted to the fan shroud. Now I need a coil wire and a short battery cable before I could start the engine. Here's some photos ...
