Is anybody keeping on tally on how many of each year model. I think the 56 is out front with the 54 in second place with the 55's close behind.

DITTO!! Hey, "Fitti Six"! LOVE your CO "Name" AND of course your CAR!! a BEAUTY!! I USED to own a NICE '56 88 Holiday Coupe; but I felt bad for the Guy I bought it from who went thru and Ugly Divorce and he contacted me to buy it back... I really FELT for the guy and so I DID! (On the condition that he offer it BACK to me whenever he thinks he might want to sell it again... ) So, currently I own a 1955 Super 88 Coupe! Alcan White over Juneau Gray! GLAD to see all the fellow owners on here! I NEED to re-Join The "NAOC" too!!
