    How could I forget about this amazing Imperial? Could you please post some more pictures of it? It's the epitome of class!

    Amazing job on the Ford! And in such a short time. Someone was busy. What was the deal with the roof? Welded on visor? That colour suits it perfectly!

    Edit - just looked back, realized they're two different cars. Was that the original colour?

    As my work is considered vital to keep the nation alive, at this point I have no idea when I will have any playtime. And IMHO all road trips should be postponed for a few months.

    In lieu of car shows or large gatherings I see that a lot of car shows this year are/will be cancelled or postponed indefinitely. However, I think we might see a resurgence of car cruises or car parades (without people crowded together) thru neighborhood streets. I think it's already being done for special needs birthdays, anniversaries, etc...that is, safely viewing the line of cars passing by from your porch, front window, etc...Maybe I'm dreaming...But, I think we could still share and enjoy our old iron from a distance this year.
