    thanks everybody for the compliments.. it was a VERY rusty POS when it showed up to the shop! Its nice Bill stuck with it to bring another one back to the road.. Tim the pics turned out flawless, great background and the sky looked awesome too. I was glad Bill finally drug it out to the show! The cabrio is just sitting for now, but i believe Pete is gonna move forward on it, but im sure if he desides to off it you will be the first to know!

    The grille got me, it's amazing that DeSoto had three years in a row of the best ones for customs -- 53, 54, 55 !!

    I immediately skipped to that story because it was Mercury related, and as I was reading I thought to myself "Hey I think that's Slddnmatt they are talking about" ... And sure enough...
    Congrats Matt, your skills are incredible... That is a beautiful Merc.
