It was decently warm today so I drug it out. It started suprisingly well considering it sat for 5 months. I changed the oil and gave it a bath.
Looks allright from 20 feet. Best part about driving this thing is the doubletakes that some people do as they go by.

20' I guess so. :yes::D Beautiful. Double takes and thumbs up are great. Had mine out yesterday and brought it home on empty just so I would take it back out today to get fuel. :yes:

Looks real nice! Love that color. You say its a 20 footer. Whats wrong up close?
When you're up close you see details....like door dings...and it has a few bad spots in the A pillars... road rash in the leading edge of the hood..... The paint is almost 22 years old so its showing its age. I'm picky because I remember what it was like when it was new.

It looks great. I am a little wierd because I like a driven car with some imperfections or really old cracked paint. Patina rules :cool: :D. You have a very nice car. The double takes are really cool too, I think we all enjoy them :D

Mad_Max, I really like the set of wheels that you have on your car. I have a red 66 coupe similar to yours and am looking at new wheels and I would love to know what you have. I think they are Cragers...

My truck was painted in late '86,and it's the same way. It looks AWESOME from the road,but not quite as good up close.

Your car looks fine to me. I sure do miss my deuce. :(
