A friend called me late last week and asked if I subscribed to Hemmings Classic Car magazine. When I told him I didn’t, he said I should get the April 2015 edition and read Executive Editor Richard Lentinello’s column. He then proceeded to read me the fifth paragraph about his visit to the Lake Mirror Classic in Lakeland, Florida and the blue 1988 Pontiac 6000 LE station wagon he spotted at the street show.
That’s my car. Needless to say, I was stunned, humbled, honored, and blown away to hear what he wrote, and yesterday that friend gave me his copy of the magazine. To get recognition at a show or national meet for my car is one thing, but to have it singled out in one of the most prestigious and well-respected automobile publications it quite another.
Here’s the car in question at Lake Mirror last October.
