    Real vintage!
    The good old days.
    The young people can never understand the joy in this.

    I'm not sure what prompted the reopening of this old thread, but I'm glad that it happened, as I wasn't on this site when they were posted... What happened to Yotaman?

    I noticed by the VIN on the 'grandfather's '56', that is was a very early Norwood, OH production, but yotaman didn't have a location listed in his profile. AND I really like the white '57 BA ... I'd love to have a solid 57 4-dr to customize... lower it, add AC and all the power, nice interior, nice wheels, and tinted glass... and enjoy driving it daily!

    PS. I have a solid '57 BA 4-dr, but it's way too original to think about customizing it...

    That '56 is actually not that rotted, for a 65 year-old car. Keeping it under a roof isn't the worst way to store one. Getting plenty of air keps the moisture down.
    It looks like only surface rust, except for a small hole between the front left turn signal lamp and the wheelwell

    They have both probably sunk about a foot into the ground by now. Unfortunate. I hope I am wrong.
