PostSubject: Back together again, and a new fan!!!   Sat Jun 11, 2016 10:48 am

Last month was quite an awesome time in my life. Our little boy Maxx was born on May 5th, and a week later we got the car back together. As you can see he's a huge fan already! I've got pictures of the work we did but cant seem to get them to load yet. I've been very busy as you can imagine. I'm still fine tuning some of the trim pieces but it looks amazing. We worked our fool heads off this past winter making this car look nice again, and it gets a lot of attention, there's just nothing like it close to where i live so the people just love it. Basically we repaired and painted the right front fender, replaced/repaired/painted the left front fender, repaired and painted the front lower valance (we went with body color, I know it should have been silver on the Savoy but I love the black), repaired the radiator core support, replaced/repaired a lot of trim in the front, new set of Coker wide white walls, polished the heck out of the rest of the car, all this and a ton of mechanical work, best part of which was the valve adjustment, this thing used to sound like a cold diesel engine, now that old 230 just purrs. some people tell me i should pull that right out to replace it with a V8, nah, I think the fact that this original old flathead is in here, as far as I can tell it has never been out, and it still runs so nice, is absolutely awesome. And so on and so on, I could go on forever. Anyways things are great right now, everyone here is happy and healthy, and there's a 58' Plymouth parked in my garage, pretty amazing.
p.s. there will be more pics once i can figure out what i'm doing wrong

Congratulations on the new baby and welcome to the club! She's a beauty. I have a lot of respect for anyone who takes pride in their 58 and isn't afraid to get their hands dirty. Phenominal job so far! Your not to far from me actually. Maybe 45 minutes. Smile

Hello And welcome to the club! Congrats on your new son as well! Glad to see you've got the car up and running, she looks great! I too have the ole flathead and have been wrestling with the notion of a V8 conversion.

Chris.
