    Wondered if anybody owns or knows anything about a couple of cars recently spotted around Chicago.

    The first one is a 56 Ford 4door, flat black, black steels, something lettered on the trunklid. Might have a striped roof, but I've only seen it quickly and at night. I've seen it twice right around my place on the far north side.

    The other one was spotted by a non-car bud that knew enough to recognize that I would want to know about it. Based on his description, it sounds like a 59 or 60 Buick (could be a chev), two-tone green with lace panels and plenty of flake. This one was spotted a few weeks ago way south around Beverly. I'm very curious about this one.

    Sounds like Mr Exotica with the Ford and Hellfish with the Chevy.
     
  3. Sounds like ( eyes narrow suspiciously ) like Mr Exotica's Ford and Hellfishs' '59 Chevy. Both on this board and Chrome Czars board.

    Stop by "Garage Days" in Addison at Hot Rod Chassis and Cycle on April 29th to see both, Harry.

    That makes sense, I think the lettering on the Ford could have said Mr. Exotica. Does he live around Lincold Square or west Rogers Park? I was suprised to see a car like that just a couple blocks from my place.

    I'm pretty sure that the green one is a different car than Hellfish's Chev. After a thorough interrogation, my buddy said it had single round taillights which is why I'm thinking its a Buick. He also described it as more of an emerald green with a lighter colored roof.

    Sucks that I won't be able to make Garage Days. I'll be in Jefferson.
    Hopefully I'll get a chance to meet y'all soon enough.

    Hot Rod Cycle and Chassis has a gathering on Thursdays...

    Seriously, check out the Czar board. Most of the guys (and ladies) on there are right in your back yard.
