    Welcome 84granfury! I see you are from Canon City! That is where my '78 Aspen wagon was sold new - at Bill Berry Motors, 910 Main Street. When I was there in 2012, the dealer was long gone and had been turned into a thrift store I think. Do you have any memories of the dealership? I still have a lot of the original paperwork from when it was sold new.

    Old Yellow (OY) as my friend named it, was originally bought by an older woman from Pueblo, who rarely drove it, and mostly it just sat in Pueblo and then in Farmington N.M. for most of it's life. When she passed away, her family brought it back to Pueblo, and sold it to a friend of a friend of mine who lives in Penrose, who then flipped it to me in 2012 with only 27K miles on it.

    Here's a few pics of when I took it to the Shell Station at Rt's 115 & 50 in Penrose to wash it off and gas it up that first day I picked it up.

    Of course, no trip to Penrose Colorado would be complete without several stops at Coyote's Coffee Den!

    My friend and I had flown out to pick up OY and then drove it home to Pennsylvania, where it now lives a low key retirement in it's garage and periodically has new toys purchased for it. Here is a more recent picture of it.
