Absolutely beautiful photography. Kudos!
Belated congrats, Paul. CC is the salt around the Margarita glass of automotive journalism, the Partagas of prose, a true colossus of collectibles. May you enjoy many more years of success.

Oh boy. Back when I was a kid, a doctor of my parents’ acquaintance had one of these. But it wasn’t extravagant or gaudy enough for him. He made a modification–added a THIRD tailfin in the middle of the trunk lid. I came to understand that this told us all we needed to know about the guy; he was a documented quack who had his privileges revoked by a number of local hospitals.
I hope the next year is twice as good as the last!

Interestingly, The Iranian (uhhhh we are Persians they would proclaim with a hopeful look you would not despise them due to their origin and past hostility from the USA hostage incident of… 1979? Around that era) customers were among the easiest to deal with; often offering you some of the ever-present food cooking inside their sub-par auto repair facility.
