The '63 would complement mine nicely.......

Maybe I should set up a "Go Fund Me" page. :grin:

There's an idea to raise funds to get that '67 'vert the world owes me! :lol:

That's only 20 times what I could have offered, not counting the divorce costs. Wayne

Why isn't it in a museum?

If you read the article, this particular vehicle was in a museum at one point in the past.

This particular white '63 was used in Fort Worth on the morning of November 22 before the trip to Dallas. (He and the first Lady had been in San Antonio and Houston the day before.) Before and after the morning speech in Fort Worth, this white '63 was employed to transport the President and first Lady around. After a short flight to Dallas a black Lincoln was made available for the tragic drive past the book depository.
