America In The 1950's
Should probably drop this old girl in here...epitome of 50's. 1956 Pontiac chieftain, first four door hardtop for Pontiac. Curb feelers, traffic light guide, non led lights, four wheel manual drum brakes, bias ply white wall tires fresh from Firestone (aka Coker), all the good works that screams 50's automobiles. Still a work in progress but she's not as much a mess as she used to be. Completely rebuilt drive train and brake system. Working on cosmetics interior and a little wiring.
I love to sit in it and listen to old music. takes you back and makes you think how much history this car has really experienced, the people that sat in it, etc.
