Photos in the “Curbside 66 1969 Chevy Impala SS Convertible” Album

Album photo
Description: "Curbside 66" is a man I met through one of his auctions on eBay while looking for Corvair models. He is a craftsman in the truest sense of the word.
This is a series of photos detailing the restoration of a real glue bomb of an MPC annual '69 Impala SS convertible. This guy's work is amazing. I wish I could take the credit for this car, but I can't.
