Lady In Red, The Other Woman In My Husbands LIfe

Here she is! She was a complete off the frame restoration! And she is looking so fine!

All Original

Paint Job by Schroeder's (my son-n-law)

Her first ride after restoration! And she screams!

Back in the 60's.  We took her out for a drive and she still gets the looks!

My hair blew in the wind and I loved it, a great ride.

Headed back to the garage for a real cleaning and ready for her cover until the next sunny day!

Honey I know she took 5 years to restore but she looks wonderful for 44 years old.

I got to drive her last night and I was scared to death.

So beautiful...............and she rumbles!

The hardtop is not completed yet........wait till winter.

She is all decked out in her red, black and chrome.........she look so fine.

I'm very proud of my husband who brought her back to life.
Thanks, honey let's take a spin around the neighborhood!

Nice to meet you. I love ladies like that. I have had two but am without one right at the moment because my teenage daughter has a red convertible and I figured we didn't need two at once (not that she shares!!) Glad you had a nice drive.

What a cool car for a spin around the neighborhood -- I'm sure you're both enjoying it. Oh I do hope that you get to go to Greece one day too. It was the trip of my dreams!

Julie said...

Wow - now that is what I call a COOL car!!!

The web sight for the red dress is:

I have not purchased anything from them - but several ladies on a cruise forum have and rave about it. I am VERY picky...and want to point out that this dress is made of polyester..not silk chiffon. I would be more than willing to pay much more for it if it was made of silk. Shame too since it is from China.

I have purchased things out of these China internet stores and been pleased. My experience (not with this designer though) is that the items ran small. The shipping is almost always 20-40 dollars for one item. I was told that this vendor gives a shipping discount if more than 1 item is purchased. She does have many beautiful gowns though...Enjoy!!!!

My Name is Symond..I never believed in Love Spells or Magics until I met this special spell caster once when i went to Africa to Execute some business..He is really powerful.The woman i wanted to marry left me 1 weeks to our weeding ceremony and my life was upside down.she was with me for 7 years and i really love her so much..she left me for another man with no reason..when i called her she never picked up my calls and she don’t want to see me around her…so,when i told the man what happened.he helped me to do some readings,and after the readings he made me to realize that the other man has done some spells over my wife and that is the reason why she left me..he told me he will help me to cast a spell that bring her back.At first i was skeptical but i just gave it a try…In 3 days,she called me herself and came to me apologizing..I cant believe she can ever come back to me again but now i am happy she’s back and we are married now with lovely kid and we live as a happy family..Am posting this to the forum incise anyone needs the man.His email address is
