Having worked in a radio newsroom for five years and as a TV news producer for five more, I'm troubled to have to call out the national media for some of this. Good cops get the local spotlight now and then, but bad cops get in the national spotlight for days on end which unfairly paints all cops as jack-booted thugs. It makes cop haters feel justified in lashing out against any anonymous member of law enforcement, which may be validated by even more publicity.
I don't know why this car gets such a bad rap for its looks, I've always loved it and you keep presenting subjects that are a bullseye in my interest areas. This is no exception and I love your mods. That profile shot's a winner. Where'd you get the centers to fill such a wide diameter rim?
Ooo baby. Now that's what a T-Bird is meant to look like. Really lovely. I'd still encourage adding the long BMF trim. Rather than adding the foil and trimming the excess, I'd cut the thin strips first, then carefully add them. No risk of scratching your paint with a blade. That's become my preferred method for many applications. Pretty car Pacen.
