    BOB, you don't know the meaning of slowed progress. It's measured in years, decades even, not weeks. Great car, great colours! If someone told me, Belfast Green dash in a Gulf Turquoise car, I'd have said they're nuts. It does work though. What colours and material will the upholstery be?

    Re: New project-------1955 66C

    Good progress but still too slow.

    Anyone know of a driver or better 4 door Century Sedan (series 61) for sale?

    It would complete the set for the exception of the CHP 2 door Sedan.

    Shoot,

    Stealthbob, you should take a bus trip to pick up the car, then drive down and bus it back. Or hitch a ride, or thumb it, or fly, or..................Matt
