Really nice car, kind of a combination of styles that work well. Is that. '46 grille? Does the front clip tilt? I was looking to see how the hood fit ti the fenders, my '46 is terrible, and I see no line from hood to fender.


That is kinda funny, the reason it has a tilt front end is because I couldn't get the fenders and the hood to line up right, this solved the problem.

Yeah they don't line real good stock, so I complicated things and pie cut the hood on mine....really didn't help the fit. Very Happy

A few pics from leaving my house in a snowstorm and finally set up in the basement of Cobo center.
In my driveway, it's snowing.



Good thing that my wipers work.


Rest stop in Michigan not really too dirty.



All set up in the basement with the So What Speed Shop and Bad Donkey bunch.

So Bob, when you backed the car out of the garage, and took the picture of the car in the snow, why did you not turn around and take a picture of the garage door for me? What were you thinking? Oh, maybe something like, "How and I going to get this car to Detroit in this mess". I bet I will get my door picture someday soon.

I hope you are having fun this weekend. I imagine you are. That show is on our list.

John

Thanks Bob, I did not expect you to take time out of your weekend. I was just teasing you a little. Thanks a bunch. I have always admired that door and I wanted to save a picture of it. I may even have one printed and frame it for the shop.

I hope you are having a lot of fun.

John

Nice job Bob and the exit of the Caddy tail lights, being replaced with those 58 Delray's, make a nice switch.
Maybe 53 Pontiac station wagons might have offered still another view. What do you think? Wink

Bob,
It was my sincere pleasure meeting you in Detroit. I am so very happy that my buddy John won "Best Traditional Hot Rod" in the basement. I know he will be in tears he couldn't be there.

The '58 Chevy tail lights look pretty nice on your car. My '47 Ford coupe had those when I bought it and, on that car, they didn't look so nice. Good proportions and overall look. You did good.
