Now for the bad news, best chance of getting the bumpers back will be early July, so it looks like I am going to miss the Greenwood Auto Show this year, yet again! It was starting to get untenable anyway because I still need to get the paint straightened out and I keep playing phone tag with the paint shop. I don't think he could have the paint done for the show either, so there you are! I do want to get the car going for driving this summer though, so I'm going to keep pressing.
But the fun doesn't stop there! The standard collector car plates are, well, a little funky.

Well, guess what they sell at the Monroe Auto Swap, old license plates! So, for $50, I got a 1971 rear license plate in really good shape, to put on the car! Now I need to take it down to the Depart of Licensing and get my title changed to this plate and I'm good to go! I may have to pay for one more registration, but after that, I'll be done. Plus, the old plate, that looks like this, but with a different number:

Roland had a really good idea about the license plate frame, I should see if I can find a frame from Lew Florence, which was a dealership in Seattle of British cars in the 70's. Or, I could research were the car was originally sold (I believe it was to a doctor in Seattle) and see if I can get a frame from that dealer. Both would be pretty neat to have.
