Roy Rogers liked Lincolns, and going to the swap meet... can anyone recall ever meeting a world wide known respectable celebrity in a swap meet? That blows my mind

This 1964 Lincoln (bought used by Roy in 1965) was supposed to be painted palomino color (originally it was baby blue), but Roy didn't realize that the friend he had paint it was colorblind, so it turned out canary yellow. Boy, was Roy surprised when he got back from vacation. But he kept it this color and he and Dale used it a lot to "take around town, or on the long road trip between Apple Valley and Los Angeles."

Thanks Steve! (Steve and I, maybe more me than him, were amazed at the many cars Roy was known to have, and these were two that I wasn't aware of)
