The Jalopy Journal
My favorite thread.
I would be tempted to run it like it is. Nice coloration in it.

This is a good one on Friday nights. It is in Mansfield which is not to far of a drive...
Fantastic thread Kevin. I am so interested in this time period of cars. It is interesting that the famous cars weren't all rust free originals...
Just gotta say you got lucky on the original gauges. They look perfect in the car.
Thanks for everyone pitching in. My current email is email@example.com as the firstname.lastname@example.org is no longer in use.
I got in touch with 100% Matt. I have sold out of everything and not currently planning to make another run of the different panels. Thanks.
WoodieMike absolutely great pictures my friend!! Thanks for sharing them. Anybody know any info on this one such as price.
The V8 60 heads in the auction were well preserved over the years. Nice eye candy.
I always loved this car. Any updates?
Can't see how that paint job could be that screwed up with natural wear and tear. Maybe someone helped with the patina. Talking about the orange...
Go bold. Go with a Freuhauf orange.
Are you thinking about going with the light blue? I think that would really look sharp.
I love it. I bet it is really nice in person.
Very nice looking castings.
I have had very good luck with the barrel blaster as well. He used to sell them at swap meets.
Looks like a pretty cut up Auburn dashboard. May just be set in there.
In Texas I would think that paint would be enough.
Great write up for Don. We will miss him.
Here is another rare photo of Don's coupe which Larry Shinoda shared with me via photocopy.
Sad day. We will miss you Don. Condolences to Don's family. Here's a rare photo of Don with friends. "Me" is Larry Shinoda who is bent down...
In my opinion the light blue paint would be mid to late 50's era. The metalflake early to mid 60's. I didn't even notice the car was channeled...
Don when Larry Shinoda owned the car. Soon Don bought it as a roller from Larry.

RIP Don. Feeling like we lost one of the greatest hot...
