I know the place you are talking about very well. they also did work for airway Lincoln, which was a few blocks from St Bruno's. my brother and sister both went to Currie,then my sister later went to Lourdes. the gang I hung with Edwards boy's are mostly all gone now.or are getting really old. ut still fun times and good memories, heck even some of the bad times compared to today seem good.

I lived at 4736 Karlov not too far from the last location. went into the dealer to always check out the El Dorado's and went to Airway Lincoln the other way near Archer and Pulaski. and bought a Mark 111, I miss those days every day.RON K. p.s. years later bought a used black 1971 Eldo just to try it out.
