Went out west of town today and bought one mighty fine pair of C-K front fenders! Came off of a 55 President K-body. They're sweet.:D

The guy told me over the phone that they were nice. Of course, there's many interpretations of nice as we all know.

When I got there, I was impressed when I got within 10 feet of them. Then the guy starts apologizin' because he found a very shallow little (you have to run your fingers over it to realize it's there!) mishap. I assured him it was nothing I was gonna make a stink about.

Really sad thing is that they came off a car that was 100% complete and the seller thought he'd make more money parting it out![V]

That is indeed kind of sad to see it stripped. Further east guys would do anything for a rustfree C-K for a project.

Mr. B, why not make the guy an offer for the remains. Might end up being a good deal for someone. jimmijim

The guy I got these from is the one that told me of how the car was parted at the wrecking yard where it was. FIRST thing I asked was where's this at. Alas, the rest of the car's sheet metal was sold and the tub sent to scrap.:(
