Good job weathering for your first try.  It is just enough to make it believable.  I especially like your "tailgate", Ford Flatheads are awesome power plants.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Blair built some great models!  Yours is a worthy tribute; I epecially like the simplicity and restraint - it just looks real.

Realy like the look of this 1, the door handles are stellar. the addition of the newer looking parts like the engie and wiper arms is a nice break from a total rust bucket, very nice Mr. chevyblack.

That is Excactly the style i like the most. I have same car kit i think, from Revell and ive been thinking of doing pretty much like you just posted. There aint no nicer engine to throw in it than flattie is. What did you use for bed posts? On quick look i thought they were made out of the chain posts that some model kits like amt 49 Merc has to block crowd from getting too close. I can hear that machine speeding you know.

Very nice build.

Excellent rust work, Mrchevyblack. Very authentic.
