It was a productive weekend.  All the slats came together nicely. Always did enjoy a good puzzle! Gotta say my hands are like chopped meat from pushing on the sharp edges to get everything together.

 The top rail and screws had been sandblasted, primered and painted the weekend before. I hope to get the ends done in the next couple days. I think the chrome on those pieces should be riveted on, but I dont want to use my cheap pop riveter. Off to Harbor Freight I go to get an aircraft style rivet gun.

BTW I didnt do the polishing of the stainless grille slats myself. I was too afraid to do irreparable damage. I had them done professionally and am very happy with the result. Putting it all back together was fun.

I had heard about that real last name of hers. Wild, especially considering her partying lifestyle that had been reported. She also owned a 1949 Delahaye so I wonder if she was into cars or just acquired them for status. Clay/Lexi

"The Green Book" pretty much co-stars a couple of '62 SDV's.  And its also a pretty great movie!

Diana Dora, her real name was Diana Fluck (really, no joke). A great actress as well as a sex symbol. That was her car and she famously drove it from England to the Cannes film festival.

I wouldn't have the "guts" to put this outstanding 56 Biarritz thru Barrett with no reserve.

 If it was mine I would have picked the Gooding auction or RM auctions with a reserve. Both these auction companies are having events in Arizona this January.

 I'll be at Barrett to watch this car sell and I wish Larry good luck on getting great money for his fabulous car!!

Oh yeah, I forgot Mickey Hargitay - married to Jayne Mansfield and dad of Mariska Hargitay.

Speaking of Bombshell Jayne Mansfield, perhaps the most gorgeous woman from that era was a Brit known as Diana Dors. Check out this shot of a lovely '55 Cadillac convertible and Diana.  Clay/Lexi

Forgot about him. I don't know his nationality, (was he British as well?). Dorian Yates was another great bodybuilder from Britain. I believe he is still with us as his era was a few years later. But Reg Park was something. I think that photo shoot I talked about was in an old issue of MD, (Muscular Development Magazine, from perhaps circa 1975. Clay/Lexi
