I’m on Southern IL. There’s a PBM parked around the corner from me. There’s a SIM that lives about a mile away. On base I regularly see at least one OBM, a SBM, and a wrapped sort of purple fade (it’s definitely not the stock Alchemy) SS. I think the military tended to buy them as I saw a bunch of them at Hickam when I was stationed there too.

There were about 12 of them at the Holden meet in Dayton yesterday, most of them from Ohio.

Yours is an interesting post (to me at least). Why you ask?
I was stationed at Schofield Barracks in the late '70's, and don't see Hickam AFB references too often.
I also used to travel to/from Carbondale from STL (if you're from S. Illinois you likely know C-dale.)
Do you ever get up to Gateway in Madison IL?

I love your powder coating projects, and especially the transmission housing! Two of these...👍,
Just wondering from information in another thread, does anyone have an idea of how many SS's are still on the road in the U.S.? I have had mine since new in 2017 and I never saw more than a couple in my area. Today I see none at all. Given the fact there were roughly 12,000 SS's imported from OZ I have sometimes wondered how many of these cars are still on the road. As I recall many were lost through attrition as a result of spirted driving and theft. So, anyone care to hazard a guess on how many SS's are left?

Boston Massachusetts area I’ve seen at least 5 not including mine. In New Hampshire I’ve seen 2.When I bought the car on my ride back I passed a blue one in New Hampshire . There definitely out there if I’m seeing them on the east coast New England area.
