    Oooo I like those photos, the Fleetwood more so! Anyway... that might be, I've always, personally, like both! Heh. I like the different pillar-less designed and then the formal limousine-like look of the Fleetwoods.

    Let's just say that your restoration is proceeding rather more quickly than mine.

    Sting, you're a nut. A good one...a great one even...but still a nut. When and if I ever get the several upgrades done to my car, which are the engine swap and body restoration (And a top secret interior mod that I may not do for a LONG time due to the difficulty in finding exactly what I want) I will not tell any of you until it's done, just so you and your "WORTHLESS" emoticon cannot bombard my nonsensical thread.

    Fill your boots Craig, I can't wait to see her when she's done. Hopefully in person someday.

    Re: White...or Blue?

    Sting is funny. Nearly every thread on this forum gets littered with his demands for photos yet he rarely posts pictures himself, not that I want to see non-Cadillac pictures. His FL meet pictures showing almost no cars, no people and tens of thousands of pictures of zoo animals was classic, and I don't think he posted any more even after severe cajoling.

    Yeah, he's a Weirdo. I hope he gets some good photos of the Jacksonville thing, whether or NOT I make it there. I thought Matt had more photos from the West Palm thing too, though, not that it matters, because Matt is supposed to be providing us with photos of a 350-equipped Coupe.

    Re: White...or Blue?

    No, I totally took more photos than Matt.

    Dave, if you're interested, I have a whole album of pics, including lots of cars. http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...&id=1431987960

    Re: White...or Blue?

    I concur. you definitely took more photos than Matt, I just thought he took MORE than he shared. I'm nobody to talk, of course.

    Anyhow, I can't wait to see the finished product, Craig.

    Well, the engine and transmission are back on the frame, so that's some small victory.

    Thanks for the props, Rob!

    Re: White...or Blue?

    OK, time for a minor update. First off, now I know why I hear things like "five year restoration". I'll literally have a birthday before this thing is finished. But, we have a rolling chassis!



    Also, they've started cutting out the rust around the backlight.




    Believe it or not, this is factory Fisher Body work. No wonder these cars rusted like the very devil under those vinyl tops.



    Overall, though, there's still a long way to go. Wish the old girl well.



    She's gonna need it.

    Wow, it's a little depressing seeing her like that. But I know when it's all said and done it will be worth the wait and $$$$ spent. I can only hope that one day I'm in the position to restore a car I love.

    You know, I was just pondering the status of this car and wanted to get you with a "This thread is worthless without pics" smiley, but I couldn't remember what the thread was titled.

    I dare say this needs a more appropriate title "The Amazing Race - seeing if a man can outlive his car" (Or, I guess, just "77CDV's 1969 FWB Restoration"... your call).

    those pics look scary, but good! glad some limited progress was made.

    What's the hold up? funds or just a slow shop working on it? If it's the shop I would have my boot up their ass for progress! lol
