Looks like some real "go-getters" there!

I do wonder what is on there minds. Serious looks. The hood paint scraped to the aluminum suggests several looks into the engine compartment. However the top seems to fit rather well. Nice example of a '15.

Richard, the guy on the right seems to be the "thinker"... the other two... not so much.

Once you get past the glare of the ballet shoes, it's an interesting car to look at. It's a very well worn example of a '15, but the brass is still pretty bright. The twiddlers must have polished it once in a while. Tires in the T era were junk and didn't last very long. So, it's kind of interesting that this car still has smooth tires up front and threaded in the rear.

The finish on the hood (or lack of it) doesn't seem to match the rest of the car.

What, You never twiddled your thumbs waiting for the chuck wagon to open up?

My great-grandmother told me that her dad sat and twiddled his thumbs for hours. One day a friend came by and asked him "Is that all you do? Sit there and twiddle your thumbs that way for hours?" She said he tuned his head real slow. Looked up and said "No. Sometimes I sit here and twiddle my thumbs the other way." As he reversed the direction of his thumb twiddling.

Wayne, you're killing me here! I do have a question relating to that car, though. I want to order an upholstery kit from one of the suppliers, for my '16. Will I be able to make the seat backs look that good without a lot of extra padding and work? Thanks for any tips.
