Was that the dark green 66? It was a real beauty.

That museum is well worth a visit, the quality and number of cars is outstanding, especially being located in such a small rural town.  George Staley the founder restored many of those big Classics himself. Is the '55 Imp you took up going on display?

Did ya stop by Willett? You were right next door.

Northeast Classic Car Musuem.

I was there last Saturday!  A friend who is a member of the museum  had his white '57 Olds 98 convert on display there and we drove it back to his garage (you should see his new 40 x 60 garage!).  All the 1950s cars on loan had to be out this month for a Mustang 50th Anniversary display for the next season.

Was it the white and gold '56? That's a nice car, and I like the '59 white & gold Adventurer convert even better, and love the metallic blue '59 DeSoto coupe the best.

Hope you got time to check out all the cars, an outstanding collection of '30s V12 and V-16 classics, biggest collection of Franklins in the world (they were made in Syracuse (20 mi away), some excellent '50s and 60's Mopars, and lots of others.

With the corruption we have in NY we're lucky to even have roads!

Roads are a mess everywhere, no funds to fix 'em right... patches that will be potholes again very shortly. You need an SUV or truck with really big wheels just to avoid getting swallowed.

The pnes I've looked at for FL cars are Canadian made so good quality, not sure if Rock Auto's for later C bodies are Chinee or not, I'd be suspicious of  those if so.

Used oil might stick good but it's not great for rust proofing as it has acid in it from blowby.

I've used Por15, expensive but effective, and has to be used up when opened, as noted. Works best on metal with some "tooth", not so well on clean bare new metal.

Nice work!!  The creased and highly sculptural lines on these bodies makes then so unique in styling, it's important to make them crisp like that to look right.

Will it go back to the same red color?

Body & paint work is easy... it's the doing it well part that's hard!
I've done quite a bit and never satisfied with how it comes out.
I have a great deal of respect for those who are good.
Takes years of experience and hard earned knowledge.
Chris for sure, and looks like Tom's in that category too.

I've always liked body work better than mechanical work... the rule of thumb I use for hardener (I use CUZ bondo) is a golf ball sized lump of putty to about the diameter of the lump's worth of hardener in a straight line, about 1 1/2" I guess. Usually works pretty well. I like it to start setting up within 3-4 minutes.  sounds like you have a good instructor  there Lea!

She's gonna be sweet - I'll stand behind what I said years ago when you were getting started, this will be the finest '68 Newport 4 dr hrdtp in exi$tence!

My next door neighbor got a new '68  Newport 4 dr seedan about this time of year in the Spring of '68, it was Lime Green Metallic with a matching green brocade cloth upholstery, 383 2 bbl, and I can still remember the new car smell when I sat in it for the first time with my friend Dennis, the neighbor's son. It was a gorgeous car, imo it was the best looking Chrysler since the '65s, and I've loved that particular year ever since... can't wait to see this one when she's done!
