Thanks everyone. I'm not going to lie, I don't want to see the place for a week haha. Glad we got it off without a hitch, that was nice. I had never done something like this. I had no clue what the layout would be or how it would work out. As I gathered pieces, things constantly changed. Now I'm focused on adding additional automobila. I've really enjoyed that part. I have some more signs coming, can't wait to get them up and hung.

Looks really good! The descriptions in that Edsel styling comparison crack me up!

I didn't expect to see all of the wagons you have there including the Rambler, Aspen, and '61 Polara wagon. Neat! Did you end up re-selling the '57 COE or is it being worked on? What's the story on the rusted '63-ish sedan?

The 57 roll back is getting new seals put in it. Then I'm selling it. I need a more functional rollback for moderate use, that just doesn't fit the bill. Have to get that work done, get it titled and then go from there. The 2 volare wagons are race cars that my nephews play with. They're excellent racers. The 65 is my fathers original A990 4 speed car. 1 of 10, only one made in black. The blue/white car is a clone of that car. We'll eventually restore the shell to as original as possible, maintaining as much medal as possible. There are 2 more wagons not pictured lol. I love wagons.

<p>I can't stop laughing at the 'Edsel' picture! You know that there's a problem when they have to try and convince the buyer that their car looks better than others! Looks are supposed to sell themselves!</p>

I was hoping to see "LUNCHCAR" on display.

The lunch car is low driver quality compared to the other cars. It was hard to decide what was going in. I need to sell off a few of the cars to make room for future restorations that are coming. Once I get back from Carlisle, that will be a priority for me.
