    I will give it a whirl later on...what a neat Hotrod...

    When I was working on that last image I noticed a hammer on weight on the rim...doesn't bother me but I thought about the ranting that goes on about them sometimes...maybe they were around way longer than I think...​

    A very historic car and it is great that you are ensuring that history will continue. Good work!

    The steering wheel in that overhead pic sure looks like a 55/56 Chevy 210 wheel, that would be a nice addition to the car as well, and an easy bolt-on in place of the musclecar wheel. (probably could sell the wheel that's on there to pay for the 210 wheel, they're not real pricey).

    New wheels and tires look good. Temporary caps and wheelcover look nice but Fiestas and a painted steel cover with a chrome ring will be even better, I'm sure eventually you'll find those.

    Do you think the car was turquoise when the overhead pic was taken? Could be, it's prior to the pinstriping on the spare cover. I'd really like to see a colorized version of that.

    I was cropping out the caps and it made me think about it...

    The other thing was the rims are a dark color and I'm sure you have that on your radar...
    Bill was artistically creative and Artrod is very fitting...and he enjoyed having power to move it...

    When I get the car painted I’ll have them paint the wheels the same color for that little bit of extra class

    :rolleyes:...Inspiration 3...;)

    I left it as a magazine with the page fold as is...it's
    an incredible shot but zine grainy...and it still captures the moment in a different light...

    The Carson Top in the side shot earlier I strayed into the creative end and tried to strike a positive note since its gone. I always say if you can change things up in a period manner you could be in that time-warp and see it from another positive angle. An Oval goes with the swoop too.

    My other survivor is called SeaBurst after the color of the car
    So the paint on the pink car is called
    Sunset Orchid or Orchid Sunset if I flip it
    Had a weird crazy name for my third Sweetheart Special

    @Austinrod Post#221 with your Colorized favorite I changed it out with an improved copy with the Licence Plate uncolored...Your can resave it as I think it looks more proper to have the Tailight and plate non Orchid...;)

    You could even edit Post #222 and add the new version to clear up that pic that doesn't show now as I replaced the old pic...

    I found that Turquoise seems to look Blueish or Greenish the one posted here is leaning towards Green
