You will see some water on the ground – yes it did rain in downtown Carmel last night. Here are some of my photos from the day. I was there for several hours and had a great time meeting new people and connecting with old friends. I will publish more later, now it is time for dinner.

    Hi, Mike,

    What is the interesting red car, whose posterior is shown in Slide #10. It has a large wraparound rear glass, almost like a fastback, and an interesting taillight configuration? I don’t recall ever seeing a car like this, even in pictures, so I would be interested in knowing its make, model, and year. Thanks for the wonderful pictures, and the great stories about cars. I always end up smarter about cars after reading My Car Quest. Glenn in the Bronx, NY.

    The red car you are referring to is actually and L6-4 Ghia. It was the predecessor to the Dual Ghia.
    Great shots of what has to be the beginning of another incredible week Mike!!..

    Slap that boy Randy on the back of the hand with a steel edged ruler! Randy I know you meant to say the 6.4 came after the Dual Ghias. Too bad it looks like Chrysler designed it But Frank Sinatra bought one anyhow. , and I think Lucille Ball. › car says:
    “1961-1963 Ghia L.6.4 (Dual-Ghia Coupe) … Twice as costly as its predecessor and faster but softer riding, with handling not as taut as that of the earlier cars. … the project, and Casaroll called it quits after a mere handful of cars were built.”
