Wow awesome work! I love these vintage cars... I never had the talent to work on them.

I do remember when this one first hit the road, I was 9 years old living in Key West. It was the period of the American-Russian space race followed by Cassius Clay and the Cuban Missile Crisis.

I believe the huge fins were symbolic of the so called space vehicles of the day. I recall riding in the family car... our blue 1955 Ford Fairlane when one of these pulled up alongside at a stop. The fins scared the crap out of me.
I thought the car might explode... like our vanguard missiles were.
