I'd like to see some coverage there.
I like the suede palace.....thanks for the pics!
Yes, thanksabunch. I see Leroy Hartung's dual grilled 37 Lincoln made the show
Do Megan and Matt still own it?
Barry Weiss of Storage Wars fame is now the proud owner. It is a pretty cool car to see!
Thanks for the pictures.
not very suede this year.. lots o shine
This building has turned into a regular show and shine event. Very nice cars and well executed overall theme. If you were looking for bare metal there was only one truck that I saw. "The Times they are Changing."
Thanks for sharing your pictures with us. That is on my bucket list. Gotta do it.
Check out my post of show coverage
Ya mean they will have to put the real suede cars in another building? Wonder what they can call it!
"The Real Suede" building? The current one "The Faux Suede"
I've never seen this car before and the first thing that came to mind is the old follow my fingers ,up,down,side to side and the apart.
It's different. HRP
Exactly why Willard L. Morrison of Lake Forest, Illinois, decided to add a second grille to a 1936 Lincoln Zephyr remains somewhat unclear today, 75 years later. Some believe it was simply a matter of aesthetics, and that theory holds water: Morrison did design some accessory grilles for Fords during the mid-1930s, he holds a design patent on the twin-grille Lincoln (as well as on a twin-grille Packard), and his own son claimed that he intended to make the narrow front ends of 1930s cars look wider with the twin-grille setup. Then again, in a patent for a similar twin-grille configuration that Morrison filed in May 1936, he claimed that doubling the grille area had a number of advantages: It helped to streamline the car, it aided driver visibility, and it gave cars a larger, more powerful appearance.
Kind of cool ^^^^^Almost looks like a half car next to a mirror, ........or I've drinking the kool aide tooooooo much.
Maybe he thought it would cool better. Looks like a twin hull pontoon boat.
i just posted some on another post and our website www.sundayslacker.com. still going thru many photos
