PIC: I like this show winner too.

1939 Oldsmobile Series 60 winner of the 2016 Chicago Auto Show Ridler award.
Built from 99% newly fabricated panels including the grill.
Some editorials at the time made some kind of fuss that a rare Olds had been sacrificed to build this car donating parts to be fashioned as templates for panels that made the build of this modern style Oldsmobile possible.

I like the car and many other custom jobs that are close to the quality build of the Olds here. Housed with its owner, co designer and builder in Texas. The paint job was done by Charlie Hutton best remembered as being part of Boyd Coddington's crew until he joined Chuck Foose before starting up his own paint business.
