    My 57 is named Bonnie. By country I meant just in the United States haha. I've driven from NC to California and back twice. Drove Route 66 and saw all the sights. Last summer I stayed in CA for 3 months working for Big M Auto. John (BigM on these forums) the owner, probably has anything you will ever need for your car. I plan in heading back to Cali this summer again.

    Alrighty then, thanks again. (would you mind snapping a pic of it if you do happen to find it?) Alright I'll remember to keep that in mind.

    Hm, Bonnie very nice name indeed. Yeah I just reread it, sorry about that heh.. Wow awesome stuff! I plan on doing something similar with Madeline, once she's restored. Very cool, and Big M Auto, I have to write that down, who knows, we might bump into each other one of these days.

    You can read the post about my car for details but just a heads up, I too have a 4 dr 58 Plymouth. Even with 4 drs it's still a headturner and a real classic. These cars whether they are 2 dr hdtps, 4dr sedans, 2 dr sedans or wagons are rare. The triChevys and Tbirds got a lot of fame but they are a dime a dozen. Everyone has one. Every car show has dozens literally, of 55-57 Chevys. How often do you see a 57/58 Plymouth? I've been to hundreds of car shows here in the Dakotas and have only seen one 1958 Plymouth:Click image for larger version.

    For the longest time I wished and wished my 4 dr was a 2 dr hdtp but I'm now pretty happy to have it. Been through hell with my car. Sure if I can get my hands on a 2 dr I will but I doubt I'd ever get rid of my 4dr.

    3 speed with overdrive actually. Damn that sucks! Did you install another Flathead 6 or throw a V8 in it as it's replacement?

    Alrighty then, will do! Hey that's almost exactly what the original owner told me! "You can go to any car show and see Chevys and Fords for miles, but you will rarely find a 1958 Plymouth..." I sure haven't seen one at any of the Route 66 events, I've seen some classic imports, but Never a Plymouth. I understand what you went through, you have to think of the car as if it was a person, companion if you may, I mean after all its what hauls our asses around town haha.

    I do like the two tone color scheme, I mean you can't go wrong with Red and Black. I plan on painting mine Navy blue with a white top.
