And what is sitting next to it. . .   A slanted headlight with smooth clean lines.

The Slanted Headlights are attractive, but the canted headlight pods on the Imperial really make me breath heavy.

beauty is always in teh eye of the beholder, but I'll take that '61-2 Chrysler over the Plymouth or Dodge next to it any day.
 
I think 1960-1962 are the worst years for American automotive design for all brands.  There are a few highlights, but most are butt-ugly.
 
I do LOVE the '60 Chryslers and learned where one is in the Bake just last Saturday.  It's a 2-door HT New Yorker - gotta go by and find out what's up!  We saw it on the way home from Fall FLing where a Buddy told me about it.  There's a '62 NY wagon in the same tow lot.

I liked the 60's.  But I'm not into those damned fins.  So the plucked chicken gives me the best of all worlds.  The slant headlights, the unique grill, and you have to admit, the tail lights were unique too.  The profile looks clean and simple.
 
To ablib on Snotty. . .The 60 to 62 Chrysler were the best looking cars of the era, next to the Dorf Galaxy

86* here!
 
I liked the Galaxie once they introduced the '63 1/2.  Had a chance to buy one with a 390 and 4-speed in the past 4 years.  Car sat for a long time.  Wish I had made a deal!

While you guys were sucking down Iron City's, watching foot ball, doing nothing. . .  . .
 

 
Both inners are primed as the rad support is on both sides.  They'll be painted tomorrow
 

 
All the joints have been resealed.  I found an air leak where the welding wasn't done and took care of that too
 

 
And now for the grand show

Goal Met!!!
 
With it being cold, I'll let the car set a few days.  Supposed to be in the 60's this week, so that will help.

Look what happens after I clean up the backyard...
Looking good Steve.
BTW,ever thought of heating the bubble with a salamander or other heating source??
It wont take much to get her up to temp to aid the paint drying process.
