I drove my 62 for the first time ever ( for me) today. I plan on taking it to Lake George but I still have a few bugs to work out. The tranny and motor worked amazing. I need to change the 4 ply tires though, they are deadly.
Here is a photo at the gas station before I made it to the car wash.

Hello James

I concur with Art.  Enjoy!
All good men own a Cadillac but great gentlemen drive a LaSalle. That is the consequence of success.

I appreciate the offer.
I'm glad I have a few months to go. I'll do as many miles as I can.
I need to get the heater core redone, horns don't work or the neutral safety switch but she is getting miles on her.

Looks great!! I drove a friend 61 Electra the other day and agree the old bias ply tires aren't that confidence inspiring.

I am hoping it's just the tires:)
