Thanks for all the replies - yeah I understand the blessing I've been afforded, colitis is a relentless disease and I'll spare the details but Nancy had her colon removed. Before a surgery like that was possible, she would certainly have died ten years ago and without her I would have died soon after of mal-nutrition lol. We camp north of that Rock and Three Stacks a couple two/three times a year, Pea Soup Andersen's seems like ancient neighboring town history and the company I have worked for nearly 40 years has supplied a number of packaging systems to Sun Maid here in Kingsburg. Happy New Year everybody! :)

If you are ever in the area, on Saturdays there is a car gathering over by the Maritime museum. 8-10ish.

Welcome from Fresno! Great looking '70 too! Health and family come first, absolutely.
Besides having a few friends and relatives down there I've done a lot of work for that glass manufacturing plant on the other side of the fence from Sun Maid...and I've been known to cruise my '68 down there for a burger at Three Crowns, or for tacos at Deli Casa.
Good luck with the 'Bee!

A cousin worked at Guardian for 30 years before moving on several years back. Three Crowns and Deli Casa are a couple of my Kingsburg favorites. Pre-pandemic the Last Chance Band would set up at Deli Casa on Thursday night about once a month. That was an automatic for me. :)

It seems to me that the majority of those who have colitis are able to keep it at bay with certain drugs or treatments. Once my wife was diagnosed, we tried a number of the available drugs but it came on so aggressively that her gastro doctor had doubts that the even the infusion therapy/drugs would be able to help her. He recommended pretty quickly that she take the surgical option which seemed horrific at the time but Nancy lives an almost normal life today. These days there even seems to be a wider assortment of drug treatments available, pray that your friend is able to keep a handle on his/her condition. :)

Welcome. Cool car. NOW GET THAT TOP OUT OF THE BOX. I bought a NOS gold vinyl top for my 71 GTX and kept it in the box for several years. When I installed it, it had stripes where it was folded. Now they won’t go away. They fade when I put armor all on it, but that only lasts a day or so. Going to try re-dye if I can get a color match.

Well if you should see an orange and white 71 Chevy (I know...) K10 pull up that will be me. I tow my little travel trailer with that truck and make Morro Strand State Beach Campground our base of operation for a week.

Yeah I have wondered about the long term storage of the top folded up in a box. But, it is NOS material with the Stauffer Chemical print on the cloth side dated 1969. I figure it had been folded up for 30 years when I acquired it so hey what's another 20??

Welcome to FBBO from snowy Ontario, Canada. That is a good looking '70 Six Pack project you have there. I bought a new 1969 SuperBee about 2 months before the A12 option came out. I wish the salesman had mentioned it; about an extra $400. I am glad you wife is doing well, she has such a lovely smile. Health and family come first; then toys as you can afford them.
