Another Cabriolet found

Hemmings Classic Car ran another photo of my cabriolet in this month's issue, which prompted a call from 88 y.o. Paul Beilchick in Heilwood, PA. His first car, bought for $100 in 1941, was '36 Pontiac Master Six cabriolet. He sold it when he went off to the Navy in WWII, but found another one in 1976 that he restored.

Here's his original car (note 1937 hood ornament), with him in the driver's seat:

Here's the car he found in 1976 in Oregon:

And here it is today, as restored by him:

His car now makes four that I know are restored, and the only other Master Six version. Surely there must be a few more somewhere out there though.
