    I always say "that's the last time" but I seem to once again be bringing the burnt paint (burnished gold) back one more time. I have not had the funds available to repaint it just yet. And yes, once again my right arm feels like it will fall off. I will use my left arm for the right side of the hood.

    The hubcap is a 61.

    Gary, that hood looks great. Looking at it makes my arm almost feel like it's gonna fall off.

    "BigWood" at the Warrior Dash at the Pocono Raceway this past weekend. It got muddy inside, but it was worth it. I have fun everywhere I take it, and they usually park me with the buses which is generally pretty good parking. Sorry about all the humans in front of the car.

    Gee, I was wondering what I was going to do with my three 1956 Cadillac hubs I had sitting around.

    I know exactly what you mean and you have my sympathies. I did that to my 86 FWB. I threw out my back so an arm wasn't so bad.
    The only problem with getting it looking nice so far ahead of time is that you have to put numerous coats of the best wax you can find on it to keep it that way. I must have fifteen coats on mine now.

    Hopefully the link works. Very short video of me and a mustang gt500. Not sure if the links will work, they don't from my phone.

    He just gave me a sample. A quick little "I'll leave that caddy in the dust" first gear and then lifted. In the video, it kinda looks like I passed him though. I would have love to see if I could have stayed close, the caddy loves the top end with the new cam and rear gears. That mustang is a 12 second car which is the goal for the caddy.

    Just finishing this up, got to drive it for the first time in just over 3.5 years since it was taken apart for the paint/bodywork...

    I like that very much. While I like chrome tailfind, I also line painted ones. Makes the cars look even longer. I plan on painting a spare set for my caddy.
