At Week’s End

We learned earlier this week in a well-crafted feature by Register reporter Rick Danley that Mike Schwindt can turn a sow’s ear into a silk purse.

Schwindt stunningly returned a 1967 Mustang to like-new condition, far from the first time he has turned such a trick.

In 1963, when Chevrolet introduced its first Chevelles — 1964 models — I dropped by Talley Chevrolet in Moran one fall day and offered up my 1955 Ford, a green beast that had carried me to and from Pittsburg State for some months, in exchange with cash considerations for a Chevelle Super Sport, satin silver, black interior, four-speed on the floor and bucket seats. Delivery took nearly four months, the new models being so popular.
