    New pics of my 1958 Plymouth

    I spent a heck of a lot of money on it recently, so I thought I should show it off a little...of course, the money was spent in areas that aren't highly visible...

    Stunnning car, I love 1958 (and 1957) Plymouths, mainly because of John Carpenter's Christine. It looks mint, what is there to be worked on? In my opinion, the most stunning designs to come out of the 1950's were the 1958 Plymouth lineup (Fury, Belvedere, Savoy and Plaza) and the Dodge Regent (Plymouth rebadge).

    Thanks. The entire fuel system and the brakes were shot. All fixed now.

    How cool man, I bet it is awesome to take that baby out on a nice day with the windows down. Always will be a dream of mine to own a car like that. Nice job!!

    simply stunning, that's why I rarely call today's cars 'beautiful', they simply don't deserve it. Your car does fully deserve it.

    Yeah, this surely IS a beautiful lady... I wish the American automakers would ever make cars as beautiful as they used to back in late 1950s... And yet people clamour for a downsized 1980s coupe made to resembled Darth Vader's mask...

    thanks God there was a time when there were no pedestrian safety requirements, many cars today which look like a bar of soap get bad results in this category, still cars of the 50's compared to them can be called 'razors on wheels'.
    Once again Buick61, beautiful car, be sure to post some more pictures of it

    I added a dash shot. More will come!

    If you didn't already know, there's some rather lame video of it here: http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=Buick61

    The pic of the dash with the beach in the horizon is awesome!

    Needs a few lovely ladies lounging on the hood, no?

    This car is actually looking good WITHOUT any ladies trying to cover it up - I am quite surprised to see such comments coming from an acclaimed connoisseur of male beauty...

    ANYWAY, for a rather beautiful car that would fulfill modern safety requirements, see Chrysler's second-gen LH cars.

    Thanks. I'm very proud of that one, too. Too bad I don't have a nicer camera. I especially like that you can see the tailfin in the rearview mirror.

    Are you crazy? What if they scuffed the paint?? Or dented the hood??? GASP, or what if they kicked of the Plymouth badge???? Now I'm all upset.
