A friend of mine gave me page A12 of the 27 September, 2017, issue of the Wall Street Journal since it had a half-page article about a 1955 Fireflite convertible. This car is owned by a Mr. Scott McQueen (not an NDC member as far as I know) and is in the Cape Cod, MA, even though Mr. McQueen lives in Florida. Since I don't read the WSJ, I wasn't aware that they did stories on antique vehicles. And I'm not sure if our editors will be able to reprint this article in our club's magazine. Just thought you might like to know.
