I had to send some photos to Hagerty Insurance to update my coverage so I thought it might be nice to share them. This is my 1958 Sedan. Bare metal restoration. WW Okrasa kit with on stock 36 motor. Maybe some others can share their "Vintage Racers" .....Kim

Ahh! Good choice. I assume type two wheels would have too much backspace and type three is closer to a Beetle wheel, just a bit wider?

Yes! Very well done, great color. The 3rd stop light is a nice touch.
Anyone else?

Looks great Kim. A lot shinier than when you raced at Bonneville in 2010! I immediately recognized your driveway/yard/house.
