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.
