It’s common with the Howe leather it shrinks and does all sorts of stuff my LTD was the same until I modded the base to tighten the leather.

Sensational vehicle you have their Cavasaurus.
I have one just like it, picked it up cheap, almost stole it actually.

If you lived locally in a decent part of the world we could go cruising together and pick up chics...

BTW, if you ask me really nice I'll show you a pic.

Headlight surround is black, but I have a few timber ones if I want to pimp it up.

I got no hubcaps, and you got me excited until you said you have 3? WTF will I do with 3?
I spose I can park it against a wall, and only photograph it from one side.
I put the small Ford caps on which regular peasant wheels have, looks ok actually.

Fordomatic wants to buy it, I said he can have it for $16,000, silly bugger said it was too much, dunno what he's smoking...

I am only pretending to be full of **** to make you feel at home.

BTW, mine has less k's than yours, and there's no dents in the bonnet from running over chairs...

I'm guessing that you ran out of leaves to photo so you picked the daggy badge and (almost) chrome boot strip instead?

We asked him if the engine had actually been called “Seagull” and how that came about.
“Actually it was just call “Gull”, because I named it that. Because we knew it was going to poo on everything”.
