Another consignment store find, it was under painted red, black on top then distressed down to some of the red. The cabinet door insets are actually pin-up style pictures of my Mom that she took to send to me Dad, stationed in Korea in the early 50's. Its shows her washing his prized Fleetwood Chevrolet. The sides of the cabinet have the hood emblems from the exact year Fleetwood attached to it.

This turned out really nice, is sold, and lives in the KC metro area!
