Loving this!

Is it just me, or does this kinda/sorta vaguely resemble a mid '60's Imperial?

Paint looks good!  I forget how spoiled we are in SoCal... lots of sunny days.

 

Besides that, great idea for a limo.  Not my thing either, but its plastic; we get to do what we want with it and not drive it to work.  I built an S10 pickup with a Ferrari engine in the bed.  I never considered the difficulty of changing the spark plugs when I built that... :o

Love it! I love the old style Japanese cars. They seem to have so much more attitude to me.
