So Chillin', Livin' and Ponderin' is what you have been doing. You are livin' the million dollar dream of many right there. Do you realize how many folks would like to be in that chair right there pondering about the mystery coach. And they would be happy for Vanessa to tell them to get off their pride and joy! LMOAO! Larry your guesses are the best ones so far and this being such a tough ombre, you are already a winner! I can say that LK Newell did have a hand in with this coach. As some would put it "Nuff Said"!

I'm guessing it was either last Steamliner made in CA or 1st coach off Miami production line.

I think Clint has got the best guess so far. So, what is it?

I'm running out of teaser pictures now. I think I'm down to the exterior pictures and if that's the case I may give you all one more shot at her. I have thought about buying this coach just because, but not sure if that is a good enough reason?

You should make up your mind on the purchase issue Ken, before you post this gems picture, as one of us might have the same idea! (I'm really curious now)

My problem is Larry, I have my eye on a couple of other Newell's and don't know how far I want to drain the wallet. If I was retired it would be easier. But that's not in the cards for a while. I always thought this one would be nice in a Newell Museum or something, but maybe it doesn't belong there.

Larry, I can tell you it would be one heck of a site with that beautiful boat you own being towed behind it. Talk about turning some heads. Actually this particular coach is so nice that it is a gem and when the economy turns upward again, it could bring six figures at a Barret/Jackson Auction. It would be cool to tour around in as well.

I'm going to see if Mr Rabbit has anymore pictures for me or if I will have to unveil her?

I've got a feeling that the exterior pictures will tell us what it is.

(actually 2 guesses, is that kosher Ken?)
I think you might be close Larry. I think you might be close.

Whatever it is... it sure seems nicely done.

It's a very nice coach. I have interviewed the owner who purchased it new. In fact after owning it for a couple of years, LK Newell contacted him and he brought the coach down to Miami, OK for suspension and trans updating. Newell had made some improvements in their production line and this gentleman didn't mind spending darn near what he had originally paid for the coach having these latest upgrades done.

More to come as I get ready to release a couple exterior pictures the rabbit has revealed to me.

Maybe it was the last streamliner built before L K took over or the last one built before he moved the operation to Miami. That's my final offering!

Larry I wouldn't doubt you've got it hooked line and sinker.

But I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Based on Ken's story, I'm thinking 1st coach out of Miami production line.

I've been waiting so long on the answer that my daughter gave birth to my grandson and he just pitched his first little league game! Come on Ken, let loose with some info.
