Hi again: Thanks Whiplash - I always thought Doug liked the car at least as much as me. It has been his "baby" all these years! He never (in 25 years of marriage) has let me drive it! I'll try to get some additional pictures (the one I sent was taken over 20 years ago). Unfortunately it's raining and snowing. It is supposed to clear tomorrow. Lets hope so. The VIN number is correct -- that's what is printed on the little plate under the vindshield. The 0 before the 1 and 2 could be an Os (can't say for sure). The rest of the letters and numbers are correct. The picture is actually taken just south of Montana next to Jackson lake with the Teton's in the background in Wyoming (on our honeymoon).
Thanks for the advice about letting people test drive it - makes a lot of sense.
