Thanks South-Paw! Jazzed to be here. I recently purchased my first vintage Caddie. The previous owner said it ran when it was parked, Don't they all say that? lol. It has the original 365 motor and Hydra-matic Trans. It's already been nosed, decked and shaved. I already have some questions so I am eager to post. Here's some pics (assuming I post them correctly). Though it is a 57 it has the factory air ride system and all of the components with a warning that the front right leaks. Since I haven't checked the motor yet, I can't run it to see if they inflate. I have most of the trim except the rear glass corners (looking for those) and interior is done. Already loving this project.

Previous pic of the chrome, the 4 sabre wheels and 2 sabre spares I got with the car. Here's my baby in my garage.

The ride home. It's been about 15 years since she's been on the road.
