HAHAA, bath slippers, that's great!

Yeah I took that one as a test because the night video was so bad. That one still sounds pretty terrible. And to make it more interesting, I should probably say something.

Good work Dan, very cool to see your car mobile at last.
The 57 New Yorker 2 door hardtop is a pinnacle car from the FL era in my opinion, and yours is a beauty!
Need video next!

Steve.


Again, I prove to be pretty useless behind a camera. But here's a short one of my friend taking it for a spin.

Thank you, man. It's been a ton of work as we all know. Fortunately most of what's left is "fun work" although a bit expensive! Saving for chrome and interior now...

The car is still on the road, it has been an amazing driver. It keeps a good consistent temp even in this 100+ degree (F) heat. It does still have a minor oil leak that I need to fix.

It gets a lot of attention. People are always ask if I'm going to keep it "like that" and they usually seem disappointed when they find out it will actually get painted!

Speaking of that, it will have to come off the road soon for panel alignment, final bodywork, and paint. Door handles are shaved. If anyone wants to donate a few bucks for chrome and interior, it would be greatly appreciated.

Adding a swivel seat from a '60 Imperial. Having the seats reupholstered in the stock materials and patterns the car was built with (code 26, metallic gray vinyl plus a black 'jacquard' motif for the fabric inserts)

Door panels will be based on the stock NYer design, but using a color scheme that goes with the car (they were... brown... )

Black Trinidad (silver and gold flecks) carpet

White headliner
