    I thought this would be the most effective place to ask for a favour from someone in SC. If there was an off-topic section in here I would post it there instead. I have a 67 mustang convertible that was bought in SC at a dealer called Paul Motor Company (a ford dealer of course) which is no longer in existence as far as I can tell. I have the original owners manual with the names of the husband and wife that bought it new which is where the favour comes in. Im trying to get a phone number so I can contact either of them provided they are still alive and well, I dont know how old they are though. Their names are James W Tindall and Doris J Tindall of Charleston SC. If anyone with a local phone book (or even knows them - a long shot I know) from Charlston SC can help, I would be forever in their debt. The dealer was at 995 Morrison Dr in Charleston 29403 but thats all I have. Once again sorry if the thread isnt in the appropriate section.

    Paul.

    Don't know if this is the same guy...seems like it may be. Wife is different, but a lot could change in a marriage over time (ask me how I know).

    If this is her, she's in her 70's.

    Not much help, but it's a start.

    Paul Motor Company is now Jones Ford. http://www.charleston.net/news/2009/mar/01/jonesford/
    The address you lists must be real old...not the best part of town. Pretty sure no dealership there now...well, there may be dealers, but not car dealers if you catch my drift.

    I have to thank you again, the husband did pass away and the ex-wife is still alive as is his last wife. I spoke to his last wife today (Hilda) and she remembers the car and is putting me in touch with Doris, the original owners wife. Hilda remembers the car well and we had a great conversation about it so thanks again!
