The Phantom '56.  This one showed up in the parking lot and we talked to the owner.  I don't remember name of owner but do have their email address.  They purchased this car recently and they are sure to get pressured to join POCI and the Safari chapter.

Larry (that's me) and Julia's '56.  In the excitement, I got pictures of all the cars except mine, you'll see glimpses of it in other pic's.  These are photos at my house but it was in the show.  It is completely stock and original except for paint and dual exhausts (added after pictures were taken.)

Robin's 57.  He ran a close race for best rust but Rich and Pam edged him out.  I'm sure this will be a beauty some day.  Just insert $$$ and watch it blossom.

This picture is from the August Pontiac meet at Ventura.  My '56 is sandwiched between Mark's 57 and Marvin's 57.  Tough competition!
