I have been doing the same thing to old cars for 45 years. It appears that they were determined to use the most expensive parts available for this Lincoln

I love how these rustorers bring everything but the sheet metal back to factory new. If they were consistent they would keep the underside and drive train grungy too.

I understand the aesthetic, but I do not appreciate it. Original paint patina my ass, it's rust and it's ugly. I want a finish to match that technical excellence. Paint ought to be so shiny a fly would slip and bust his butt if he tried to land on it.

Awesome engineering executed quite well; the aesthetic is theirs, and their market, I guess...
Seat belts?

This put a big smile on my face and gives me hope for my country.
