Last week after I sold my '32 roadster on HRHL I flew to Texas to look at a '55 Ford Crown Victoria that you have listed. The selling company is Classical Gas, and I had a great time. Cris Lofgren who owns the company picked me up at the airport and took me to the owner builder. The car was everything he said it was, and will be on its way to Oregon tomorrow. Cris has a number of cars on your service and is a very straight forward business man, and one to go to if your in the market.
