So i had to go to Reno this morning to pick up my wife and son from the airport from there week long visit to grandmas house.

So i called up Ron (ron55) and met him early before my wife's flight arrived in Reno for breakfast and he had this nice little surprise for me.....:)

It is the February 1957 edition of Car Life magazine, and has all the comparative ratings of all the new '57 arrivals and consumer analysis of each new car.

The magazine is almost just as perfect as if i bought it from the news stand yesterday :tu

Needles to say i will be storing it in a plastic bag to try and preserve it as much as possible..

Thanks again Ron, you made my day buddy.... :D

Rick, enjoy the magazine. It was good to finally get together after all the times we tried. Always good to shoot the bull with a Trifive buddy. Ron

Hey Pops!!!

I FINALLY just sat down and read the article itself, of course it does not say anything about the car in question, but i would assume you are saying it is a pic of a car that never was because the car has 150 trim with a 2 dr hard top?

Nope. It's just a pre-production set-up and photo, before the final stylings for the year were determined. It's been published elsewhere – I think also in 'The Hot One'.
