    Wow!!! This will be pretty cool. A different choice for sure in terms of platforms but I'm sure it'll turn out top notch.

    Photo documentation looks nice too!
     
  15. Thanks!

    Nice pics Mitch!
    I know the car has a love it or hate it look. I've always had a thing for lincolns 58s are so weird it's an acquired taste my friend Dave Dalli had this car when he offered it up to me I wasn't sure after lookin' at it awhile I knew it could be bad ass with a panel job by Gambino! We planned this for a while the coincidence of it getting to Alex the day Watson passed was a sad and strange coincidence. I would have rather had Larry see this car but I know he'll be watching.
