For Sale: 1962 Chevrolet Bel-Air

Details: 1962 Chevrolet Bel-Air

13,324 original miles. Two owners.

Garage kept for 90% of its 53 years, the rest of the's been protected by a high-tech custom cover. Other than the tires, some of the belts, hoses and a few odds and ends, this car is as it came off the assembly line. It starts easily, still runs, and I just have decided it's time to sell it. My father was offered $25K cash for this car at a show over 10 years ago, the insurance value is ~$17K...I'm splitting the difference at $20K.

There is no restoration here; this is a unique car and I can and will wait for the right buyer.

If you know anyone that's into antique cars...please send them to this blog. My email is I will keep the pic above as the header until I sell the car.

Ben Franklin - A Message from 1764

In reviewing prior December posts, I decided to link back to this 2010 offering regarding the events of December 27th, 1763.
However, I will add a new historical tidbit to my annual Suquehannock tribute by quoting from the book below printed/written by Benjamin Franklin in 1764.

Now, for a moment, please fast forward to 2012 and the recent/tragic event in Newtown, CT.
Hold that thought.
On the last page of a book written in 1764, Benjamin Franklin chose to close with the following:
+  +  +
"I shall conclude with observing, that Cowards can handle Arms, can strike where they are sure to meet with no Return, can wound, mangle and murder; but it belongs to brave Men to spare, and to protect; for, as the Poet says,
--------Mercy still sways the Brave. "
F   I   N   I   S
+  +  +
The events in Lancaster PA in 1763 were tragic.
The events in Newtown CT in 2012 were tragic.
This time around, let's hope we're able to find a few brave men and women with the courage and the resolve to do the right thing.
May they all rest in Peace.
