John, that is stunning. Fantastic job. The poor Edsel takes a lot of abuse but I don't think the styling was any worse than other cars of the time.B)

Your color choice gives the build an elegant look. I like how you used the correct engine/valve cover colors. The chrome trim is very neat and the whole build looks very cleanly built. These cars just weren't appreciated at the time they came out.

Couldn't agree more. 58 Buick and Oldsmobile come to mind.

Thanks guys! As a kid I was fascinated by these huge expensive looking (to me) cars!

Compared to our old 52 Chevy these were things of beauty!:lol:

Do you have any interior shots? I'd love to see the transmission buttons on the steering wheel.
