    How great to see another post from our brothers in Italy. Twice in the last couple of days, both bringing back a rough project with some excellent craftsmanship. I salute' all of you and it makes us realize how lucky we are in the U.S.A. to have more raw material to pick from. Thanx for sharing this excellent project with us. Very cool! ~Sololobo~

    Here some updates. Car is now at the body shop, to be sanded and smoothed for the paint. Engine, a 57 Cadillac, is at the machine work. New Turbo 350 is readfy to go. Got power window set up, so have solved solenoid problem for opening the doors.
    Here some pics from the body shop

    Still undecided about final color, either Chrysler Inferno red or Bronze.

    Bronze with a white interior says classy and POP!

    This is AMAZING.......but you are Italian and some of the most incredible architecture did pour out of your country.

    Except spaghetti westerns.....nooooo those were bad.
