I Had My Eye on Your (1959) Imperial

You're too precious. HBB spotted this bomber tucked into a driveway while we were walking home from his friend's house. Going by the flat tires, it's been there a while. Or maybe someone just bought the thing, dragged it home and is wondering where the #$%^& to start. The dealership was in Philadelphia and extinct by 1960. It's been a while since I came across a backyard beauty like this; maybe Cambridge real estate is just too expensive for storing old iron; or people around here are just too serious and important to mess around with old cars.
