Nice! My mom has had a baby blue '57 since 1995 that my dad did a frame off restoration on. They probably put 7-10k miles a year on it as they aren't afraid to drive it on long haul trips on sunny weekends.

She has the same Coker wide white wall radials on her car. I remember when she first got it, the factory Kelsey Hayes wire wheels required tubes. :eek:
