Art Bailey/Hemmings muscle car magazine article

Postby rmjak » Sun Sep 24, 2017 1:04 pm

I subscribe to hemmings classic car magazine and each day they send an email that shows some cars for sale and interesting story's concerning the different facets of automobile history and collecting. Today's email related to our Mark VII's with a very interesting article about the cars that appeared in the July 2009 issue of hemmings muscle car magazine. The article which includes a lot of information on our cars, that was provided by our dear friend Art Bailey. Can't believe he is gone and I know all of us who had the pleasure to pick his brain really miss him. I don't know if you can access this info by going to hemmings website or if we have it in our library but it contains a lot of intersting tidbits about the development of our cars and technical info concerning their operation.

Wheels were not body coloured on the SE's. They had the black insert. I love that article. When I was looking at these cars originally, I must have read it a hundred times. LOL Does Kat Bailey ever check into the site anymore? I hope all is well with her, and her 'herd' of Mark VII's.

Not exactly.

Our dear Friend Kathy has moved to another state and continues to live life to the fullest.
Most of the old 'heard' has gone to Friends and Family.

She and the Girls are doing well.

Glad to hear she is doing well and that most his beloved Mark children went to other whom would care in the same manner. Thank you for the update.
