Thanks, glad you like it.

I drove it today. A good day to take some photos because it is mostly cloudy outside. Hard to take photos in direct sunlight with a shiny car!

Here are two pics, taken from the first story rooftop...

Thanks.
Yes, the Plymouth is mine, too. I made a thread about that with the title "1966 Plymouth Fury VIP."

A new top would make your Tbird look better. Maybe much better depending on the condition of the current top.

The landau bars I bought off eBay arrived today. As the seller said, they will need to be re plated/re chromed, which I will have done next week.

Here is a demo photo of how they will look once installed on the limo...

Another set of landau bars arrived in the mail today. Now I have to make a decision as to which set to use.
The smaller set measures 17 and 3/8" from end to end and the longer set is 23 and 3/4".

The smaller set is in better condition but I will probably have it re chromed anyway.

See photos below... which set looks better on the limo?

Definitely the smaller ones... that is if they both get put on 'as is'.

I am leaning toward the smaller ones, but am not sure yet.
