The '57 Fords are cool-looking cars anyway, but the retractable hardtop is so unique!

It's not mine yet! But it will be. It's my daddy's. We both work on it and put it in shows. Actually there is a show every week on Wed. starts after 3pm. In Sunnyvale, CA. Anyways my dad and I have fun with the car. It was my grandpa's and when he passed he left it to daddy. The car came from New Jersey. My grandpa had bought it at Hershey, KT in 2003 and it had won 1st place there. Then it went home with grandpa to Indiana. When he pasted away it came to CA. My dad and I took it to Good Guys and Won Best Resto last November. That's it so far.
