Message: Re: Jim Schroeder Party photo 30 years ago? More like 40 years ago John, early or mid 70's maybe ?. I see Dave Hobart sitting front left. There's Ed Lutz (RIP) A whole lot of 26er's in the photo. I recognize most in the photo but their names are forgotten over the years. I asked where am I in the photo ? If the photo was taken in 1976 I was living on the Chemehuevi Rez at Havasu Landing where there were not "two girls for every boy" but three girls for every boy. Petey or Kelley should be able to date the photo.
Hi Jim, Thanks for the info on the pic. Just a guess on my part as to the age of the picture.

Message: My friend in Ocala, FL just bought a 1956 Continental Mark II out of a field where it sat for a couple decades. He plans to make it drivable again and show it off. In researching the history, I believe it was originally owned by Harold Chaney of Chaney's Department store! Is there anything you could tell me about the car or do you have any pictures? The name "Dorothy Harry" is in the car as well, could you tell me anything about her? Thank you! You don't need to post this, but if you could e-mail me at I would appreciate a response!
Hi Kyle, Yes, Mr. Chaney had a 56 Continental alright. It was maroon and that is all I know. Maybe someone else knows more than I do so I will post this. Good luck.

I followed it to Azeka Plaza (for you Maui visitors ) where a car show was going on. '56 Belair Chevys reminded me of Schaff, Rich Bennett, Woody McCain and who was the great kid with the BROWN one? Help me out. Also a '37 Lasalle. ...incredible! Wish you all were there. Damn, with a little damp air, lower temperature and the band in the distance from Hal Cap, I'd have thunk I was back in the parking lot at school! So cool!! Nice selection for this one horse (shark) town. Mahalo! Jim. Er, Kimo?
