Thumbs up

Nice hardtop!!

Boy, that red paint really makes a statement on the 1958-60 body!!

Still trying to figure out the wheel covers...

In that red with bright chrome contrast your 59 really does "pop". If side spear tip chrome from a 59 was mountable on my 60 it would be there. Is a trim feature that is perfect for Squarebirds.
Picture taken from rear seat of dash etc is good photography.

You can put the Spear Point on 58's and 60's but you have to modify the door for it to fit.

Or...Who would want to make a '59 look like a '60? Answer... Someone who likes the long winged Tbird on the C column, and the chrome hash marks on the rear sides? Or someone who has a '60 and likes the chrome spear point of the '59?

Here is a pic of the '59 next to me at the VTCI Regional in April. At first, I thought it was a '60 that someone had added the spear point to. Until I looked at the rear and saw it only had 4 tail lights and not 6!
