Re: Build thread , 2yr gameplan

Sounds like a good plan and you're off to a good start. My 57 was originally Indian Turquoise and I've collected a few pics. I think this one is pretty close. The Hotwheels truck looks like a good match for Surf Green, which was very popular on 57 passenger cars when they were new. We always called it Sea Foam Green...

That's going to be an awesome truck! I bet the guy you bought the big window sheet metal and glass from was a really smart and good looking fella wasn't he?

Re: Build thread , 2yr gameplan

it turned our real nice. I have pictures someplace...

Key to a quick build...be organized.... so I hear
