Didn't know we had such events down here, until Flash Gumby called me last night if I wanted to go. Not the blowout like Mike sees in Austin, but some nice cars and apparently the venue changes monthly. This month the meet was at the Ragtop Motors location in West Palm Beach. As the name implies, they sell mostly verts, but they had a Ford Sedan Delivery and Woody for sale as well as some classic American cars.

I was going to pull my Healey out, but remembered that I threw a weight on the pass front and have a wicked vibration at 50+ so I left it at home as it was a 19 mile jog up the interstate.

Here are some pics I snapped:


First thing I noticed when we pulled in. The owner is a Porsche guy, and this is his hauler.












53 Fleetwood for sale 19K. Really nice. BTW my Great Uncle Gus worked for GM and did the tail lights on the 52-54 Caddies, so I have a sweet spot for them.


Blurry but nice Pontiac StarChief. From the placard in the windo only about 12xx units built vs. almost 7000 Nomads 1957 I think it was, or was that total run? Anyhoo, a real nice Survior condition 2-door Poncho.





Healey 100/6 for sale inside the building. Realistically prices at 45K


Healey 3000 Mk I (slightly bigger displacement vs. the 100/6) Nice Owner, this resto is 20 years old and still looks new (about 21K since frame off).






MMM Woody




54 Sedan Delivery



Nice Studebaker for sale, forgot how much


51 Merc Sedan with Suicide doors.


Notice the roof line on this Imapala Coupe, has ribs like a vert. Nice touch Detroit!


clean interior


67 Charger. I could have bought one of these in High school this clean for 1500 bucks. I regret it to this day.


65 or 66 my memory is fuzzy




Austin something, neither Flash or I have ever seen one. I liked it.



65 Skylark for 22K, Used in some Kevin Costner movie. It was clean low mile car.


Nice E-type coupe




Nice color combo on this Pony



Nice lil TR3


Didn't like the headlights on this dude's car, but look for the headlights on his girlfriend in one of the other pics. She's wearing a white top and the pics don't do the triple M cups she was sportin' justice

on the left Shocked

wait, on the right, lol


Cool Aston Martin


2002s were the shidizzile imports in the early 80s...


Represent the Italians! There was another silver Ferarri, but I missed a pic on that one


Flash Gumby's 69 MGC and his friend David's 60 MGA.


Flash has been spending his mod money under here lately with the triple SU setup.




Nice looking GT6 Triumph.



Pink Fiberglass, but it was still nice


TR6 with a TR250 stripe.



1st gen Midget


Bently, Owner was pretty cool dude.





Do want.


Flash Gumby heading home....

My favorite is the 57 Safari, followed by the 65 Vista Cruiser the 67 Charger and the XKE. I am guessing that is your favorite Jon, is the 65 Vista Cruiser, as you took 5 pictures of it.

I liked them all but the red GT6 with that gorgeous interior and the 67 Charger are my 2 wants.
Eclectric group of cars and every one of them was beautiful.

I never knew they made a 2 door Safari! Cool!

And major FAIL on the headlight pics, BTW. Doesn't your camera have a zoom??? Suspect

@Crovo, had one but it was all blurry. My son's camera, first time user.
The arms folded position didn't do them justice, wish I could have gotten a profile shot, she will never drown that's for sure.

@CHRIS there is a 2 door Safari lurking about locally in the winter time, I will try to get some better pics as it's restored and looks tight.
Having seen 3 or 4 of them I had no idea they were more rare than Nomads until yesterday.

Great pics! Love the 69 GTO with the stick. I also really like the steering wheel on the blue Buick. Very sharp.

Looks like a great show. Cars and Coffee meets are so cool...you get such a weird mix of cars!

Thanks for posting!

They made them in 55, 56 & 57. They were Pontiac's Nomad, I don't think they sold too many. They came with a 347 CU, 347 HP. I believe tri-power was available. The difference between the Nomad and the Safari was about the same as a Caprice wagon and a RMW. There was a family down the street, where I grew up, they had one, well into the 60's maybe early 70's. It was really stylish.
