    Default Now This Was A Pleasure To Rag On.......

    Another retirement day of "Wax & Chatting" with the bahoys. Mike's '59 was show cased today for the clay barring, really sweet to work on. It is so much more fun to rag-on than to wrench-on, especially with this crowd.

    For the Corvette purist, there is something on the front end of the '59 that doesn't belong, if you find it, I'll give you a cookie.

    The only thing I see is the license plate frame. Waiting to find out what I'm not seeing...

    ETA: Looks just like this one to me.

    Pretty sure the emblem on the front is correct, same with the flags on the fenders.

    ETA: I'm done staring. All the trim looks the same, the emblems look the same, the only thing besides the plate frame I see that could be considered to "Not belong" would be the plates that expire at the beginning of '59. Which would mean the car would be plated at the beginning of '58. Still to many variables to be considered wrong though. Like I said before (but mean it this time), I will wait to be informed of the error.


    Between the pic op posted and the pic I posted, the upper "cove" trim in the op pic comes over the front wheel and all the way the bumper. The one on the other pic stops shy of the bumper with roughly 1" of paint exposed. Not sure which one is "correct" though.

    Windshield squirters? Yep. I'm going with squirters for the cookie, Alex.

    All, nice try, but...........no cookie.

    Maryland allows registered rods, antiques, and classics older than 20 or 25 years to display a plate the same year as the car.

    I realize that. When going over a car with a fine tooth comb like this though, one starts to split hairs. That's why I brought up the early expiration date. When that plate was new, it was March 1958. Kinda hard to plate a 1959 Corvette in March of 1958. Just like I stated though, too many variables to be considered incorrect.
