Default 2 Birds spotted!

We spotted an LXI heading southbound on I-75 just north of Atlanta yesterday morning pulling a red pick up truck. Later yesterday we spotted a gray 89-90 PT40 on Hwy 5 around Ellijay GA with a front cap with something that looked like "Taylor Wagon" or something like that....

May have spotted one of they same ones John spotted leaving "The All Hallows Dog Show" at Jim R Miller Park in Marietta GA on Sunday afternoon. First clue came before I ever saw it. I heard the sound as it was pulling out of the RV lot well out of my view. Then got a profile theough a 6' gap in the trees. Windows and trim are pretty distenctive. Then was sure it was an 80's pt from the front cap. I perceived the name to be Tail Wagon but didn't get a clear view. Also had a lot of pinkish accents in the paint job.

Yep, it did have lots of pink accents on the gray body. In fact I jokingly asked Gladys "I wonder what color the interior is".

I'll bet that 8V did get your attention.....

Let's just put it this way, I could have bought a bird for what it cost.

Not really - it was a nice low key affair. I paid for the first wedding. I attended this one.

Thanks for asking.

Ernie - this is a medium to light blue FC and came out of North Georgia about a year and a half a go. The lady had no pictures on Vintage Bird so I took a bunch and helped her post.

This coach had been in Georgia for many, many years. The guy died and his widow was selling. I made an offer she could refuse and I walked.

Hey Stick, welcome back, seems you were quiet for awhile. Good you found a home for the GMC. Now we can tell the Mrs. you are ready for a Bird. Hope to see you both at Coackworx in January.
Do you still have the link to the your column???
