Thanks everyone for the help and kind words. Im not 100% sure what i am going to do to it yet but the drivetrain will stay as its all been updated.
Id like to restore paint and interior eventually but I also like it this way because its got history and nostalgia....plus i dont worry about the kids scratching it or anything like that. I guess I havent chose what to do with it yet. Just currently enjoying cruising it around.
I think it is just right as is. It'd be a shame to cover up history with new paint.
I agree with that also. Thats where im having a hard time. Not much on earth is sexier than a 57 belair all done up nicely.....but im all about the history of both of my cars. I think it sometimes makes the car ya know what i mean.
