    I only see a passenger side hood hinge, not "driver side." Maybe the picture is reversed. I guess that they are a matched set anyway <G>.
    Looking good! I am glad that chrome for you is less expensive than for most of us.

    Did I say 'Driver side'? I guess I did.
    I have a good excuse though.
    I was so tired after I installed all that stuff, I didn't know my left from my up.[V]

    Unlike some guys (and I envy them) I have never been able to keep a car for ever and ever.
    I'm glad I'm not the Lone Ranger in that regard...I was starting to wonder [:I].

    Beautiful car, Jerry! Keep the pictures coming []

    Those are the wheels I want!! Are those new,or are they 'relics'??

    Those are originals from the 60's. 15X7 on the front and 15X8 1/2 on the rear. If and when I run up on a deal on original Torque Thrust of the same size I will mount a set of tires on them and swap them out every couple months just to get a different look. Maybe then I wont get bored driving the same car everyday and decide to get rid of it. That's always been my problem. Unlike some guys (and I envy them) I have never been able to keep a car for ever and ever. A typical street rodder has three cars, the one he is driving, the one he is building in his garage and the one he is building in his head. I am the typical StreetRodder. Next in line (after this 55 HT) is a late 53 Commander Cp with a 500 Caddy engine out of a '70 Eldorado, the biggest, baddest, carborated, stock, mass produced engine to ever come out of Detroit.
