    Looks nice, the super low roofline seems to work nice with those tail lights, I like it! Nice to know it's been on the road.

    Yeah, 1950 4-door, was parked in 1973, all original, it's going to need allot of rust repair but what are you going to do, they don't grow on trees. It's just time and welding right?
