65 PONTIAC BONNE ON FIRE, SOLD IT! Short story about the Bonne. In Dec. of 1967 or was it Jan. Chicago had a terrible snow storm. 24" in 24 hours. That's a lot of snow. The car was parked outside and the weight of the snow when it froze broke three of the four shocks !! The Bonneville lasted about 120,000 miles and ran like a charm all the way to the end when it needed a total rebuild. We would have done it had the body been in better shape. The only thing missing on this car was twin quadrajets. It had the factory headers and twin exhausts. It could hold 6 sets of golf clubs in the trunk along with carry on bags. Oh well, it must have been recycled at least seven times by now.

This was a fine car. Needed very little when purchased and needed very little along the way. The only major repairs were a new top and two new clutch slave cylinders. Pop never liked the car because it was British. He loved the E for the same reason. Go figure that one out. TWEEDY BIRD YELLOW XK 150 PRIOR TO MERCEDES SILVER

Here it is after painting in Mercedes Silver. All of the kids learned to change gears in this car. They loved it as much as I did.

San Diego Zoo's Jaguars
The July Issue of JAGUAR TRACKS notes that "Orson" one of the San Diego Zoo's Jaguars is being taken care of by the San Diego Jaguar Club. The Board of Trustees of the Zoo and Wild Animal Park acknowledged a gift from the club for the care of "Orson" for the coming year. As Jaguars are an endangered species it has been a fitting gift over the years.
