    1958 Plymouth Belvedere: Wash and Shoot

    Since some mods were showing off their newly washed foreign cars, I thought I'd share some photos I took this weekend of my Indiana, USA-made Plymouth.

    (Truth be told, it hasn't been washed since May, but I think we can all agree that indoor storage does wonders for keeping dirt accumulation low).

    1) Yes, I know the rear plate is off center, I have to find an original plate bracket.
    2) Yes, I ran of of gasoline, hence the last photo.

    Fantastic pics. Actually even if you did run out of gas that last shot is pretty nice, maybe if not for the open hood and visible gas can.

    And though I was amused by the first line, to be fair what started the "wash and shoot" threads was a Kansas-made Saturn Aura.

    Lookin' sharp! Have you done any restoration work on that or is it a meticulously maintained original?

    No no, neither. A lot of mechanical work was done under my watch, but cosmetically it's an older "hobbyist" refurbishment. It needs new paint and chrome.

    Remains one of the most striking designs ever released. A stunner.
    How is it you have a Fury speedo in your Belvi ?

    It is a beautiful example of how things once were. I love looking at older cars, it is one of the ways I am able to connect with previous generations. Thank you for the treat!

    I think the 150mph speedometer came with any car equipped with the big block 350ci Golden Commando.

    She's magnificent.

    2 questions though. How do you listen to music in that car? and does it take unleaded fuel, or do you add a lead additive?

    What? 13 posts and no Christine comments?
    No no, neither. A lot of mechanical work was done under my watch, but cosmetically it's an older "hobbyist" refurbishment. It needs new paint and chrome.
    Really, it looks great as is, I would enjoy it just like that.

    No power steering I see.

    Both the car, your treatment thereof and your photos are first-rate!

    Whenever I look at historic car dashes, I can't help but wonder why can't automakers, with all the tech available today, create dashes equally appealing and simple, yet exquisite compared to the usual black plastic boredom.
