DAMNED IT ANYHOW!!!!!!!! My dad took his hemi-powered 1953 to get an appraisal today, and when dad and the appraisal guy came out of the aprraisal office to appraise the car the grill that dad had just wiped off 2 minutes earlier had been backed into and broken.
I am pissed!!! I have alot of sweat and blood of my own into helping dad restore this between 2000-2003. Not to mention all the time and money my dad has invested.
Anyhow, it'* not alot of damage, but damn!! that pot-metal is expensive as fukc to replace, especially in the show-quality chrome that has on there.
I don't have pics yet, but will in a couple minutes.
Here'* a pic of the car last spring parked in our front yard under the Catulpa (sp?) Tree.
Another from mom and dad'* trip to Wisconsin Dells, WI with it to the Walter P. Chrysler Club Nats in 2003:
