I just found this thread and went through all 50 pages, so I guess I should add mine to the pot. It's nothing special except to me, it has been driven 20,000 miles in the 4 years I have had it. Do I rate membership?
Gets my vote!

Another five window getting my treatment.
on the road. 1963 earl scheib paint. 1963 tuck and roll
That blue coupe is neat, but I just don’t think I can get used to the knee-knocker cowl lights.
My little bro removed cowl lights from his 50 year painted 32 coupe and popped some little chrome caps in the holes. Looks very acceptable.
That blue 5 window is a bit of perfection. Althouigh I have to agree on the cowl lights. But I could live with them....no problem.
Wouldn't the cowl lights be blocked by the headlights? Oncoming drivers wouldn't see them, if they were converted for turn signals.
they stick out past the headlights and i have amber led lenses in them for turn signals.they are bright. led pontiac tail lights also. wanted to be seen in so nevada and so cal traffic. if i lived in boulder city nv or carlsbad oceanside ca they would be gone. the amber turn bulbs in headlights i made park lights
Thanks, it was well planned then.
