    Here's mine, a Chevy in my regularly driven '55 Buick Special 2-door post. Still some detailing to do, but it's getting there. Air cleaner is a gennie Olds unit shortened and adapted to the Holley carb.

    Nuthin' Special, but I like it.

    Jeffrey, I just found this thread. Great job! I'm in the thinking stage on my '41 Plymouth, which I will paint a shade of maroon/burgundy. I'm really leaning toward a satin black for the engine compartment with the Mopar painted hemi orange. Any more ideas/pictures/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    The only pic I have is my avatar...for some reason I can't attach pics. Anyway when I finished the truck the engine compartment looked great...but I drive it alot...and it is impossible to keep clean. By the way, what is the best way to clean polished aluminum? Someone told me white vinagar...but that didn't work. The best thing I've found is simichrome and time.:(

    Sorry but I don't see anything in the first one besides a great set of headlights. And they sure aren't olds!
