Sorry, I'm new and haven't figured out how to just add a post to the topic and also how to add an image file, like a jpg? I read the commonly asked questions and that didn't help. I'd appreciate any help for this newbie-Thanks!

Sorry for the late reply Norm. It is a stock color combo for a 150 - Neptune Green & India Ivory. There is a bit of green pearl in it also. Thanks for the compliment.

Here is my new Nomad. It was last registered in 1972. I worked on it with my ex-son-in-law back in the mid 90's. The guy who owned it got into $$ trouble, and I ended up with it;

It has a new 468" big block, PDB, P/S, Power Windows and door poppers. The paint is a 2011 Lexus color with additional gold poly (looks like metalflake), and the interior is tan leather with 2010 Lincoln 6 way seats

I has a new CPP 500 steering box, a 200R4 to be installed along with Vintage Air and Retro Sound.
My old 55 ran mid 12's ,and this thing feels a ton faster !!!

More later...It surely is fun !!!

Can you give me the info on the paint you used on your '55? That is the look I want for my '46 Stylemaster.

Nice car!! Did you break her yet?

I haven't had a chance to sit down and take additional pictures yet.
The A/C is in and working well, but the electrical glitches are still kickin' my butt. The driver door power window has failed for the fourth time; The driver door poppers have failed AGAIN; the passenger door is intermittent and has a range of just a couple of feet. The wiring for the fans, glove box light, dome lights, cigar lighter and clock have all failed, and Eddie (I call him HAYWIRE now) mounted the fuse block so high that one can not see nor read the various circuits in the fuse block.
It is going to have to be redone at best, or re-installed at worst. My health is so bad, I can only work on it for about 10 minutes at a time..Heck, it takes me that long to scratch and giggle
It goes in tomorrow for a leaking freeze plug or water pump (did I mention that it has a brand new engine?); Wednesday it goes back for installation of a different power window set up, a fix for the doors and..
I mentioned that we had a new CPP 500 steering box (sweet) installed. Ya know that plate that goes around the column and patches the big hole in the floor..someone failed to put it back in; A/C doesn't work well when your feet are right on top of the header..
Friday it goes to Bow Tie Overdrive who will install my 200R4 stage III trans. Then it goes to a "display" at a local shopping center where ads will be shot, then we will figure out when I can slip the Posi rear in there.
I am planning a trip to Bakersfield on 8-23, and ElSegundo Main Street is 8-25..Whew!!
The week after CFAC, the bosslady and I are taking it to NorCal to visit friends and families and my new grandson.
Everything in the car is new, but I do have the 200 mile premium tow service from the AutoClub coupled with an extender for my cel phone and a big amp for my CB radio.
I will try to post some more pics...I am particularly proud of the Papua New Guinea leather interior and I want to show it off.

Your Vette is wearing an amazing shade of candy red. What's the paint? Every kids dream car and still mine.

How it has always looked...In my weak mind!

39 years ago, this month. Fresh flame paint!

5 years ago at Art's.

In 2 weeks, Palmas is going to primer quarter panels at Art's.
