Wow, just... wow.

If the owner is happy with the car then I'm happy for him.

Personally I think it looks like a Chrysler answer to the two-seat Thunderbirds.

My aunt had an Imperial, back in the day.
It had one of those soft square steering wheels. Weird.

I saw no mention of any kind of top? Not very practical for MI weather! Other than that, I like it! thumbs up

Very well done, and with tremendous creativity, to the extent that the only errors stand out all the more: A black, modern stereo head unit and large diameter wheels are both easily-fixable design blunders.

the squarish wheel makes me a bit nervous and the tartan plaid is fugly,
the gold bits, extremely gaudy, not Gaudi.
I love the Jetsons tail lights.
Wish I had the time and money for something like this.
Well I have one ....

The terms Baroque and Rococo come to mind.

Baroque - adjective: highly ornate and extravagant in style

Rococo - adjective: extravagantly or excessively ornate, especially highly ornamented and florid

It's gorgeous, in a bygone era retro way.

No, it's not something I would do or own, but I like that the guy did it, and did it so well, even of some of the touches aren't to my taste.

I can still readily appreciate and enjoy what he did.

It is excellent work but even considering the larger wheels with the low profile tires, the proportions seem off.

35 years ago I knew a guy that had two Corvairs in his family. He lived only about 40 miles from one junkyard that was the biggest collection of Corvairs in central California, so at that time it was easy to get spares.

That thing is truly hideous. The wheels amplify the hideousness.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I don't like the low rider and low profile tires aspects.

Otherwise, pretty car and I'm also really impressed by the photography.

What the above started as - 1959 Imperial Sedan


Comparison to an actual 1959 Imperial convertible.

So 64 or earlier. shifter on the dash too?

My '64 Plymouth Belvedere had push buttons for the transmission. I kid you not.
