A Diamond in the Rough
I found this beauty sitting among the weeds of a garage. Although the Cobra emblem on the side with the wrong 428 emblem seem like they belong, they do not. BUT, in 1969 you could get a 428 SCJ engine as part of the Drag-Pak option when ordering the shorter gears. If this is a true SCJ 428, my guess is the owner wanted to bring that out a little and not have it be flashy by using the Cobra emblem along side of the 428 emblem. The 428 emblem looks to be off of a 1968 Galaxie. The main difference in the SCJ 428 vs the CJ 428 was a 4 bolt main vs a 2 bolt main. It’s hard to see in the photo, but the hood does have the correct markings with the flat black stripes. A lot of people might immediately jump out and say that “it doesn’t have the hood pins and ram-air scoop, so it couldn’t be a CJ or SCJ”. True, it doesn’t have them, but that was still an option even when ordering the Drag-Pak. Just because it’s not there doesn’t mean it’s not a true 428. The garage was closed when I was there since it was on a Sunday afternoon, so I couldn’t inquire about it other than document what I had seen visualy. Without popping the hood I really had no idea what was under it. Even then, the VIN didn’t tell you if there is a SCJ in there. If this truly is a CJ, it’s a rare find. If it’s a SCJ, this truly is a diamond in the rough since just over 350 were ever produced with that package. I’m withholding the location so I can investigate more and possibly aquire it if the price is right.

The Journey Home
An old photo I found on my hard drive of my sweet beagle. She sure did love hanging out of the window in her pink rhinestone color.
In October I visited Auschwitz and Birkenau. Despite having learnt about it in school it still shocked me when I arrived. It seems like a normal place until you look at things like the barbed wire fences; I didn’t expect to see trees inside this place where so much cruelty occurred. I found the collections of the Jewish people’s possessions especially poignant, knowing that they were taken to Auschwitz in the hope of a new life. I decided to make the images black and white to represent the past, with any hints of colour representing the present to show that we have changed; that this is a reminder that something like this should never happen again.
