RE: [T3] !!!Black Hole sighting...SHUDDER


Actually, the Henry J was an independent make in the late 40's, never
associated with the 'Big Three'.  I am fairly certain that it had some link
to the Kaiser company, but the memory is getting a little fuzzy on them thar
late 40's indes'.  It also marketed a vehicle to Sears to put in their
catalogue (Yes, you could order the car through the cat., there are
records), called the 'Allstate,' just like their older auto type stuff.

I wouldn't want to second guess anybody (big lie), but I would imagine, that
a Henry J being close to 17 feet long, RJ can *probably* tell the difference
between the two.

The Henry J was a nice little fastback, though.

VW
	Fastback.
