The 49 Club Coupe was a good looking car but the paint had some road rash. $19,500
Since my drag car was a 60 Chevy 2 door wagon, I have a soft spot in my heart (and my head) for 60 2 doors. This one was the right color for OK. It looked like some rust was under repairs on the trunk lip (I am pretty sure this is a common place for them to rust). The right rear wheel house also had some Swiss cheese holes. $10,000.
The 50 Ford PU also needed some work. The filled in cowl vent would scare you to death. But, I think it was a deal priced at $3500.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
IMHO, the deal of the show was this 56 150 2 dr. sedan. No rust. A rebuildable 350 with a rebuidable turbo 400. Electric wiper motor. $3600.
The 55 2 door wagon had serious damage to the header above the windshield and will require a highly qualified bodyman to fix the roof so it would look right and hold a windshield. The rest of it was bent and/or rusted. $3500.
The $19,000 55 was a 55 footer. At 20 feet, you could see the sanding scratches under the base coat. Drips, sanding marks, blistering.

Most of the 57 Chevies that showed up were 4 doors. I don't have much interest in 4 doors, so I didn't photograph any.
The Nomad didn't have a price. I usually don't pay attention to un-priced cars. But this one was nice. And I saw it leave in an enclosed trailer, so I assume it sold.
The only other 57 2 door I found today. A 150 that didn't have a clean panel on it. There were dents in the header above the windshield. May or may not have to require extensive repair to get a windshield in it. $2500.
IMHO, the 56 Buick at $3650 was a better deal.

Let's start off with the "dare to be different" group.
1978 Gremlin X - 258 with a factory 4 speed. I think it was a good deal at $3000.
1964 (I think - had to go off the tail light casting) Corvair Monza - $2500 OBO
This Taxi even had a coin changer (look close at the running board)! 1924 Durant Star. Wooden spokes. $8500.

Got the fenders, core support, and valance bolted on the car. Spent most of the afternoon on Saturday putting the hood together. The guy I bought it from disassembled it for shipping. Wasn't sure whether the hood would win or me. Finally got it together and on. Now I have to measure and plan how to get the radiator in.
