    Beauty! I had a Shoreline Gold ‘59 Pontiac Bonneville convertible - loved that color and car. It had every option imaginable and was big and powerful. Enjoy that...

    This looks fantastic! I'm not often a fan of relics, but this is understated, realistic, and tasteful. Nice job!

    Beautiful color, and going with the white plastics is the perfect compliment. I’m just not a fan of the aged plastic.

    Thank you! Sounds like an amazing car! Got pics?

    Thanks very much! I appreciate that.

    Thank you. It was a really fun project!

    Understood, but you can't have one with out the other :D

    Can't tell if you're being sarcastic. But if you do have questions I would be happy to answer them.

    Not in the least, really does have the look of a used rather than a used Strat. My reputation may have preceded me but, in this instance, genuine admiration!
