OOPS........

well i guess nobody is perfect. not even doug conrad.

check out the damage to his prized possession.......

boy i bet there is story here. i wonder if anyone can tell it???

Jim Brockman Collection....surrogate insurance adjuster!!!

Mike Brady says the crumpled passenger fender happened in Hanover, not far from the Conrad residence......

was this before or after the restoration of 1995????

Alec Watt in the drivers seat circa 1941, Kitchener, Ontario. Alec was the third owner of this supercharged phaeton. Doug Conrad was the sixth owner.

The information on this picture comes from the back of a copy of the same picture which is in the files provided to me from Shirley Conrad.

Presumably Brockman provided a copy of the picture to Doug Conrad many years ago.....or perhaps vice verse, ha ha.

another fine photo of the doug conrad sc phaeton. this time in a farmers field in western ontario around 67 or 68 with doug conrad at the wheel explaining to former third owner alec watt just where the heck the coffin nose has disappeared to as alec holds the door ajar. both men are trying to teach the young ones how much fun restoring cords really is.....with dougs son listening in on the conversation from the passenger seat and alecs son in law, wally michalski, watching intently from the sidelines in his yellow shirt.

identification courtesy of terry watt.....alec watts son.

the boys have a good chuckle around 67 or 68 in a western ontario farmers field on a hot summers day as doug conrad fires up the old conrad car, his son laughs at the hoodless and pipeless roar, third owner alec watt, with hands on hips, looks on in amusement while his son in law in the yellow shirt, wally michalski has a good chuckle.

thanks again go to identification courtesy of alec watts son, terry watt.
