Thank you so much. And I would never complain with how I was raised, I am very fortunate. I went to a private school to get a good education and there were far too many kids who went to the same school who were, in short, spoiled brats. Almost all of them drove brand new BMWs or whatnot. I'm not gonna argue with that, but not many of them seemed to appreciate what they had. One girl 2 years younger than me has a "summer car" (BMW 3 series convertible) and a "winter car" (BMW SUV).

I never would've expected such a fine automobile to be mine. But I couldn't be happier. As for those requirements, I'm sure my dad will add even more as he sees fit. And no matter what they are, I'll be willing to accept them. I'm very fortunate to have what I have. And I hope to someday pass it on to my kids.

As for the '68, I'll probably start a thread on it pretty soon to showcase my progress. It's on a rotisserie right now.
