    Perfect! I wish I had a job caretaking that one! I am a Moonglow freak. That one hits the spot. What color is it. I see a little blue or purple in the finish. Great powertrain selection.. Do you have interior pics? Is that a 40 Ford coupe on your garage, disguised as christmas Tree Lights? I bet Santa likes you!

    Frank and Carol from Chrome-It used to own it. I believe they got it from upstate NY. Maybe someone from up there can chime in.

    Nice 54 ; Looks like a car that was built in Hamlton,Ohio about twenty some years ago , Charley Brewer built it and was painted white at that time ? I always liked the car ;

    The cars are similar but not the same car. Brewers Moonglow clone is still the same.

    Just gave it a fresh coat of black after finishing some rust repair. The interior is black&white r&p .That is a 40 Ford,owned one for 15 years,sold it cuz it got to be faster than Me.Bought the chevy as a winter project (on my 3rd winter) it's getting close.

    There is a guy here in new jersey that has a Moonglow twin. When I first saw it the damned thing gave me chills. I knew the original was crushed so I was positive it wasn't it. The car was identical and had Moonglow II on it.

  17. OK no offense intended but you were just cruising the web and came across this thread on the HAMB? Just curious how people find threads like this one is all.

    Yeah, Benno...Me too! But I'm more...'bewildered' than curious. This HAMB away from HAMB is a small world.

    Great looking car!. Tell us all about the rear window and who did it. I am up against the exact same problem. Looks like Plexiglas or Lexan.

    THANKS, I done the rear window myself with 1/8 lexan,that is what was in the car when I got it so I had a good pattern. It still took a week of cutting and fitting to get it in so I was happy with it.
