    wouldn't a "faux poser" be the real thing?

    Nice work on the Olds! I'm curious to see how it will look with a blue top too.

    haha guess i meant "faux/poser". it's gonna look pretty sweet, these phone pics do it no justice. it's a real bright metallic blue. the more of it to look at the better.
     
  7. That should look pretty good

    The stance looks great! To my eye, paint the skirts and she's done. I strongly disagree with painting the top. Maybe someone could do a photoshop for her.

    it's such a great color blue. the more of it to look at, the better.

    sure does, she just had the hydro rebuilt 2 weeks ago & the motor runs great!

    no! haha

    Most excellent example of the breed. I agree with whoever posted above about beautiful cars. Real automotive beauty is a thing of the past so we had better preserve ones like this to act as a reminder of better styling times.

    And yet another one with white skirts. Is this a new trend in Mass?
    How come I didn't get the memo. :)

    yeah man, everyone's doin it. simple fact is the paint on this car has seen better days, parts store spray bomb didn't match worth shit, so the badly faded/flakey visor & new skirts got sprayed a less offensive white to go with the white scallops this car's getting. needs a few patch panels (rockers mostly) so a real paint job is at least a year out.
