Tim & Willy's Excellent Adventure

by Willy Vinton

Earlier this month Tim and I visited the Nethercutt Museum in Sylmar, CA (partly out of curiousity, and partly to get Nancy to quit insisting that we go see their collection).

Here is a very nice 1938 Judkin-bodied Lincoln. I really wish that I could have taken better pictures of it, but there are so many cars in the museum I couldn't back up far enough to get the entire car in the frame.

Here Tim is admiring a big Pope-Toledo, and wondering how we can sneak it out and get it to Fairbanks. Alas, we had to abandon that idea.  

I think Tim is looking at the bottom of this car, but maybe he is paying homage to the car gods in hopes of getting this one to Fairbanks as well. 
We had a great visit at the Nethercutt collection and even found out that they have a French chef that comes in to cook lunch for the employees. I pointed that out to Tim, but he said something like, "don't even think about it." Oh well, baloney sandwiches will have to do.
