(Fair warning. These are men, fixing cars. They don’t swear all that much for men who fix cars, but they do swear, because they’re men, fixing cars. It’s like a rule or law or something. Deal with it)
Our friends at Cold War Motors are back with more fun with old sheet metal masquerading as an automobile. Today’s version is a 1961 Plymouth Belvedere. It’s got fins. A Plymouth Belvedere is not, and never was, an exciting ride. However, it’s got fins. It’s got an acre of hood, and a hectare of trunk lid, but it takes a winch to get in and out of the back seat. But it has fins. The fins are sorta laid on their sides, and integrated into the whole megillah, but hey, they’re fins. It’s got moonshot taillights, a full eight years before any sort of moonshot worth mentioning. So there’s that. What it doesn’t have is a windshield that would keep the rain and the occasional Canada goose out of the passenger compartment. But it does have fins. Bonus points for the Carlo Rizzi windshield removal method at around 1:10. And the fins.
