    Very cool car! Shows it's age with the paint how it is. I'll be leaving what's left of my paint as well! It only looks like that once, and when it's painted, you can't go back! [​IMG]Mine at the moment. I'll have to build a similar rag top to yours I think!

    I haven't even washed mine yet, there is still plenty of paint under the weather beaten skin.

    Enjoy it. Drive it. Look at it. I think it is perfect as is. My advice would be to stop asking people for hot rod advice. I ignored all of it when I was playing with this. Who cares. 012711GNRSThursdaySetup284-vi.jpg 012711GNRSThursdaySetup283-vi.jpg

I am still in shock. Here are a couple shots of it and in the mag it shows Jim’s face when he saw his old car for the first time since 1957 it’s a pretty amazing shot of his excitement. When he saw the car it sparked something and memories started to flow. He talked about driving it to the salt for the speed trials in in 1954 as well as lagoon on the weekends. And he found like 8 more pictures of it. It was an amazing day and I will never forget it.

    I Hope you don't mind me posting this pic of your car at Bonneville last year. I had the pleasure of meeting with you and took a few pictures of it and this one is my favorite.
    Love everything about this car!! Bonneville 2017 091.JPG

    Unfortunetely we won't be going this year. Last year was the first for us and we really enjoyed it so we'll definetely be going back possibly next year.

    What a cool find! You did it justice!
     
  26. Just found/read this thread from the beginning. Great story! Looks like, once again, an cool piece of history landed in the right hands. These pics are amazing! If a double post of pics is going to happen, glad it happened with these. They are worth a second look.
