Awful

Not all cars in the museum are pristine.  This one is just plain awful!  However, under the skilled hands of a skilled craftsman  who is familiar with these cars, even this pig’s ear can be turned into a silk purse!

    Love all the details in that paint…and the ripped seat…nice close up and love how it fills the frame.

  5. Love anything with suicide doors, Testores salivate when they see a gem like this.

  6. Actually I like it. It reminds me of that old favourite t-shirt that sits in the wardrobe. To small ever to be worn again. To worn and frayed at the edges, to called smart. You’d never throw it away though, you love it.

  7. I like a museum that’s not afraid to show a ‘before’ version alongside all the others that look so pristine.

    I’m sure it will look different in a few years. It has good bones.

  9. It’s totally amazing to me how bad of shape some of those cars are in and they have them looking almost new in no time.
