Beautiful car, and lovely daughter!
So, it's a 63 with a 64 hood, huh? Interesting...
Again, great picture.

Well, nobody really objected to my original post on this story, so I'm
ropping the other shoe. Here's a pic of said daughter and said car,
aken when she just turned 17 and had been driving it for ~6 months.
y the way, it's a 3-speed manual, and the non-synchro doesn't bother
er a bit. Pretty cool little hood ornament. (And this pic MIGHT have
ade it into a GM advertising brochure.)

When my daughter was about 12 she insisted that I save my '63 Monza
900 for her when she was road-legal, and she commuted with it for
her last two years of high school, to the admiration of many and the
curiosity of all. It remains her prize possession and her vehicle of
She is now 18 and in a music theater program at a prominent
conservatory for performing arts in a major northeastern city, which
I will not name to avoid libel suits. Show business being what it
is, almost all the male members of the class are, shall we say,
light in the loafers, and while she admires them all as performing
associates, they leave a bit to be desired as weekend companions.
She was recently home for spring break and drove the Vair at every
opportunity. I asked her if she appreciated various improvements I'd
made since the last time she drove it. Her answer struck me as
provocative and completely unexpected - she said, "Yes! It makes
straight guys stare at me!"
I doubt if that would ever make it into a GM advertising brochure.
