Re: Totaly "Restored" 1st Sport Coupe sold in San Francisco

Re: Totaly "Restored" 1st Sport Coupe sold in San Francisco

Re: Totaly "Restored" 1st Sport Coupe sold in San Francisco

When you check out the prices of hotrods this car to me looks like an absolute BARGAIN and yes a shining example of the restorers skills. Top marks to whomever is responsible for the result !

Re: Tire Dressing

If you DON'T have whitewalls, a splash of cellulose thinners on a cloth wiped along the sidewall does a great job leaving a dull shine. Nothing better !
