  1. I really like this car, nice paint, really unique looking. Two questions though, why is the parcel shelf ballooned up like that? Maybe the answer lies in the trunk - too bad no pics of trunk. Is it a three on the tree and don't see the shift lever in any of the pictures...I see a clutch pedal maybe transmission is a pre selector automatic? Maybe the shifter is hidden behind the spokes of the steering wheel. Hope the car sells well the previous owner looks like he spent a lot of money restoring it.

  7. My father single handedly cornered the market on bathtub Nashes in Queens, NY right through the early 60's.

    I was just a little kid, but I believe my mother did not see the humor to the degree my brother and I did when my dad's prized 53' Country Club Hardtop literally folded in half on a huge dip on Queen's Blvd.

    Snapped so there was a gaping rip between the front and back seats. At 7 years old it doesn't get much more hilarious.
