      In 1986 I bought a '50
      CD sedan to save it
      from whatever bad luck
      might befall it on the
      open market. It had a
      pair of unmounted
      fender skirts in the
      luggage compartment and
      three tiny holes in the
      rear fender panel.

      I gave the car to Bill
      Jalensky, who then gave
      it to Bill Houghton in
      Texas. But Bill forgot
      to give Bill the
      skirts, and they were
      lost in a subsequent
      house fire. (Bill has
      since sold the car, I
      heard from his son-in-

      I'd seen Crosley skirts
      on rare occasion, but I
      always thought the
      CCs/CDs looked better

      do look nice with
      skirts, I think.

      Skirts were never a
      Crosley option, and I'm
      guessing they're JC
      Whitney or equivalent.

      I think the rear fender

      pictures in the club
      photo gallery. If we
      don't get any response
      from the members, I've
      got a friend who
      restores WW2 T6
      aircraft and has an
      English wheel. Might be
      he could roll a few
      pair at a reasonable
      price. It would take
      some metal fabrication
      to finish, but he can
      produce the blister.

      Freshley does some
      beautiful sheet metal
      work. Maybe he could be
