    Hey everyone-
    It's looong overdue for me to post an intro....I have lurked on here for ages. I never really thought I really had anything to contribute so I never posted....someone had a question that I wanted to answer so here I am.

    I work for a large automotive supplier and live a few miles north of Detroit. I have a mild custom '59 Edsel that my wife and I made the trek down the the Lone Star Round Up in a couple years ago and I put about 7000 miles per summer on.

    I recently picked up a '29 roadster body which I hope to have as a roller by the end of summer. 32 rails/flathead...late 40's style is the direction.

    I'll probably continue to mostly just watch and learn....

    Great looking car. It's unfair to group the '59s in with the homely '58s. They really are handsome cars, and I love the early-'60s custom touches on yours.

    Welcome!

    'Bout dayum time you introduced yourself and stopped being the perpetual "lurker" ;)

    Glad you're here, Darren :cool:

    Now for the real question: Are you and the Edsel coming to Round-Up? Hmmm?
