That has to be one of the best looking '53's I've seen. Well done, Brad. [^]

I'm hurt Matthew.

P.S. That is a great looking '53.

Gary, I said "one of" the best. ;) Yours is high on the list too. Geez, there's just too many good looking '53's out there..

Gary's car is beautiful, but I love that maroon color on the coupe. I would hate to have to decide between the two.

I've seen your earlier pics of that car and I just love it.
Great choice on color and from what I have seen it looks flawless.
Great job.

Gorgeous...I'm still a sucker for wide whites. I hope she didn't catch a cold out there with no cover:D

Best so far 15.065 @ 91.84 MPH Island Dragway Great Meadows NJ Summer 2009.

I've heard you make mention of a chick named 'Desiree' before (I don't know how to get those thingies above the two E's, so I hope I'm pronouncing it right:D), and now I know how pretty she is... Beautiful car.:) That color is called Manchester Maroon, isn't it? LH

Hold down ALT, using numeric keypad type 0233, release ALT.

Original color was Manchester Maroon so I haven't changed that.
Computer color scan matched to a formula for 1983 Corvette Cordovan Maroon except calls for a touch of gold pearl. Eliminate the pearl for a perfect match.

New camera arrives on the 18th. That's my 35th employment anniversary.

Beautiful car! Wasn't the only studesicle in Centre county Saturday, unfortunately at 6:40 in the morning I was worried about getting my belongings out of the car so I could get ready for the football game, not snapping pics of my frosted lark[B)]. It looked much better Sunday morning in the warmth! http://i542.photobucket.com/albums/gg440/62SY4/15537_731628139323_14232901_4185098.jpg

Brad find a tag and bring it to New Buffalo on Saturday for all to admire. I promise you she will be a hit!!! If not there to Reedsville in another week.
