The Adventures of Greenbrier, Volume 1 ; 90 pages of history
So here is a very belated post of the diary/ photo-journal that was passed on to me from the previous owner, who bought the Greenbrier from the grandson of the original owner. Of all the classic cars I've owned, this is by far the most intimate history any of them have had that has been passed on with the car. It's a bit surreal to me to be allowed in to the story/ stories of this Greenbrier and how personal some of the stories are. I haven't had a chance to read all 90 pages of it as I've been traveling for Christmas the past two weeks, but I'm thoroughly looking forward to reading more during my layover tomorrow in Denver.
What I have read is inspiring to me to see how this Greenbrier was a way for being with family and creating memories, and a tool for exploring their curiosities. In addition to that, I love reading the process of them selecting the Greenbrier over a VW, and how Ken and June methodically customized it to meet their needs... more than once.
