Not Just Another Old Car

I just love seeing a sight like this, even though it fills my mind with questions. Was it lovingly restored by somebody who'd found a rusted hulk in a field someplace? Was it hidden for three decades or more in a garage, and didn't get discovered until Grandpa died? Was it kept polished or was it repainted and the bumpers rechromed? Exactly where these days can you find a place with a "Bumpers Rechromed" sign out front? I know that there are still a few places around that can make a new convertible top.

I took a few photographs and hung around for perhaps half an hour. I'd hoped to meet the owner and maybe get some answers. No such luck. I haven't seen the car since.
