I honestly used to think these things were hideous, but since I started doing a restomod on an old Johan annual a while back, they've really started to grow on me. I think this one looks great.

You either love or hate the looks of a lot of 60's Mopars.  Some of them are so ugly that they grow on you and look cool.

I see it has a brake pedal big enough to put both feet on...

 

it's big, shiny and red, what's not to like?  :)

While it looks incredable, anybody else wondering why there are parts of the engine bay and the pedal assemble that weren't brought up to par with the rest of the work? Lots of rusty bolts, dirty parts, and stuff that a little prep work and a few cans of Duplicolor or Krylon could fix and make look better.

It's a beautiful car, but I noticed the same thing. He even left the NAPA sticker on the radiator hose.

Yep! the '60 Dodge is probably the only one that I really hate but I still like it in a way.

Because he might spend his time driving it. My Tbird is nowhere close to being restored if you look close. 3 kids, a house and 45 hours a week at work doesn't give you much down time to do stuff like that.
