    Probably the best looking four-door of the 50's. And the tail lights are a work of art. Keep up the good work!

    Thats bitchen. I really dig the tuxedo motif. Izzit OK to say motif?
    The Olds always were classier than the Chevys. When I was a kid they were giving em away because everyone wanted a tri five.

    Looks great so far. I have to say though, those wheels are just beggin for some spider caps, to break up the black. But I'm an absolute sucker for black steelies with spider caps and whitewalls... Too bad they're so darn spendy.
