Some of you long-time members may recall now-deceased Maryland member Paul Gibbs. Paul was a fixture at many of the early Club conventions with his pride and joy mint green '53 Firedome. It appears from the listing below that the car became part of a large collection and is now being offered for sale. Someone has added a set of Chrysler wire wheels, which were not original equipment on Paul's very original car.

Somewhere Paul is happy that his car continues to be a show-stopper. ... &viewitem=

Ooops, I goofed and described the car as a Firedome; it is clearly a six-cylinder Powermaster. Sorry, Paul!

Hello all again from Norway, just attended a local show here and won a nice little price for the best in show 41-55 model cars.
I have also seen this on ebay and this sun visor is exactly what I am looking for.
Can anybody please help me with possible manufacturer and or repro dealer?
I regularly search ebay but most of the visors listed are for the split window type or the one with the massive bracket to go on the roof.(fulton)
Hope someone can help.
