I'm a believer too and always amazed at Bill's connections to so many important 'Vettes that pop up!
The girl part of the story is nice but maybe let the Mustang go to the dementia?

LOL!

He must have sat as his desk and banged both the work orders out in one sitting.

Naturally, he took care of <span style="text-decoration: underline">his</span> car first...

Sidebar:

You guys may already know this, but Harley Earl's office at the GM Tech Center is intact, as he left it.

His office was always spared as the various renovations took place and now is registered as a historic site (and therefore cannot be changed).

It is now occupied by GM's head of Design Ed Welburn who - it would appear - appreciates the aesthetics of the space. That wasn't always the case among former/earlier employees.

Bill, that's a cool story. I think the pink car is really cool, but I don't think that I could live with pink. The Harley Earl blue car is one of my favorites.

I have a story about nearly owning a pink new 1971 Cutlass SX convertible that was left over at Nortell Olds in 1972. I didn't want pink then, either.

----Thanks to all for not thinking Im over the edge!

----Tim,,,The day I saw the roadster it was a pearl blue, not the blue that Bob painted it. Thats not to say that Bob was wrong. I believe he just restored it to another color (sort of Nassau Blue) that the car was painted later than when I saw it. I have always thought that maybe it was a test for peoples reactions to Nassau Blue.....Bill S

I always enjoy hearing about all of the car/people connections everytime I see Bill.

Ummm, they said they believed you (as do I) when you told this story.

No one said they didn't think you were over the edge.

I would hate to think I am out here (over the edge) all by myself.
