I have to say as as an automobile fan of both original concourse restoration, and well executed alterations ie: street rodding/customs/and hot rodding-this is a very nice car. I have seen the car hobby over the years go from one extreme to the other. Concourse quality restoration has gone from a wealthy persons "sport" to something only the most well healed can afford to compete in. The same for playing in the show car arena.
As of late though I am seeing a trend of young enthusiastic builders with ingenious creativity building great cars. Whether any of us agree on what the final product should be, the outcome is the survival of the car hobby.
With "clunker" bills on the books of many states, and I believe just introduced to be pursued nationally to help "save" the American auto industry, it will take all of us who love old cars in any configuration to keep the hobby alive.
Slamming a Benz is better than crushing it for a $4500 " clunker credit towards the purchase of a new GM Cobalt.
I will now stow the soap box. Cool car, BTW-from the sound of the system it is an airbag unit (Air Ride Technologies)? Not hydrolics.
