    The location was occupied by Classic Motors of Hinsdale for a good bit of the '70's.

    When Randy ran the parts counter, he had a picture of John with a Doberman in front of a few Porsches (IIRC) with the quote, “In the beginning..” If it is still there, perhaps someone from Continental could post it?

    Love the sheepskin seat cover on the office chair. Classic Randy. He is a man to be missed. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m thinking I’m getting nostalgic in my old age. Hoping to find a pic of my jalopy at the dealer.

    No I haven’t. Seems off limits to me to bother a man of such importance for this. But maybe I should.

    He actually responded out of the blue to a random post I made about 365 GT 2+2s and gave me some information about my car. Can’t hurt to ask.

    Well the queen mother will always get respect! the GT4 not so much. But I believe my car was one of the first continental had, but not positive

    We still use that garbage can and I still own the scissors in the top right corner of the picture. Randy trained me so I still don't know anything :).

    An absolute legend who is still sorely missed.

    Don’t sell your car short just because the masses didn’t get it for far too long. Is there a 308Dino registry? They might be able to help as well.
