Another Rometsch surfaces..

If anyone is interested I can put you in touch with the owner. It's a 1960 Model convertible.. Little crusty but probably cheap.

It's not my car. I just posted it for the owner. The snow tires remind me of home in New Hampshire.. YUK!!

Cheap means make a offer under $10K for sure.

These things just keep popping up. Cool.

Now all you potential buyers have your choice of this one... or Randy's car. Decisions, decisions. You will spend the same money either way. One just happens all at once... whereas this one would happen over time and you could hide the bills from wifey!

It would be cool to see them side by side... sort of a "before and after" display.

Anyone have any accurate guess on how many Lawrences there are now?

BTW... congrats Lenny on the D&S at the Treffen. It looked really nice. Mr. K seemed really proud.

Interesting... That was not in my listing of banana bookmarks but I added after my Banana Slug chat room and the Banana Museum.

The car is in Pennsylvania. I've followed it for about 5 or 6 years. I initially identified it for him and sent him some pictures of one Lenny was restoring at the time. This is the first time he sent some good pictures (I only had some so-so prints before). Still would be cool to restore.
