dear Carolyn

i am in the field, doing my recordings with friends for my oral history library/archive, “kitchen table stories”.

here on some pictures of my 1956 nash metropolitain basketry covered car that i have with me in the field, and i am posting them here for you.  they are not the latest views of my salvage/remediation project, but it is something for you to see. this view is the car before i cut the selvage and tucked the ends in.  it gives you an idea of the finished product.
thank you.
