    Wasn't feeling the roof it was flopping a weird green color. So re did it the Cinnamon w/ a gold pearl.

    This is a really cool build. Great color. The pictures of Mr. Winfield actually painting it are awesome, dude...

    That is just plain wicked. The Winfield Fade is so distinctive, and he nails the look every time. Great job! Get it finished and go cruising with him!

    Badass!! Please tell me that the car will never be sold. How many out there can say that a legend like Gene Winfield painted their car? These guys aren't going to be around forever. Like someone else mentioned, this car is like an original Picasso to the rod and custom world.

    Sweet as hell....

    Yeah, I went back and fourth but after smoothing out everything else out it just stuck out.

    Seriously my dream car. I can't wait till I one day own one of these 57's. Love the lines on these things, much more than my squareish 63 Galaxie.

    Looking so good !
     
  27. That wagon is beautiful, can't wait for some updates. subscribed
     
  28. That old dude paints pretty good.......he should stick with it. wink,wink

    Your 57 is so cool, the high water mark of 2 door mid 50's wagons. What an outstanding build and back story with your uncle. Keep those posts coming!
