Hey guys, I'm at it again....

Trying to find my dad's first Plum Crazy T/A that he owned in 72-73. A few months ago, I found the check he got back from dealer after bank cashed it and dealer had written the VIN on it..

It was 4-speed, black top, black interior. Sold in 4/14 in North Hills, CA by Dave Denson. That's all I know for now. Here are some pics:

If it was anybody else I'd say there was no hope, but you seem to have the Golden Touch for this kind of thing  :bigsmile:

Those pictures were on ForEBodiesonly.com and his Facebook when he was trying to sell it. He passed away in 2/2015.

The picture with the girl is my mom by the car on her honeymoon in 5/1973.

Any idea how long ago the photo on the trailer was taken?   Those Posi-Traction Torque Twister tires haven't been around since the 70's.....

That was 2014 when Dave Denson bought it from guy in Texas. Dave only owned for a couple of weeks.
