  1. Looks like it went through several paint jobs. But cool looking car.

  2. The rust comes out really well. I wonder if this can still be saved... :-)

  3. I'm guessing this "snagged toothed clunker" is a Mercury. It looks as if it could have travelled to Mercury and back. Love the cropping, texture and mercurial sympathy displayed in your image Doug.

    I seldom use it - need to brush it up!
    Bet you're the only person who can understand my Latin. ;o)

  9. Despite the weathering there's still little bits of smooth shiny chrome that catch the eye and contrast beautifully with the rest of the textured rust...
