Now how could I have a name like finlover and NOT have one of these?!  I had to get rid of the flames though--those were just tacky. ;D

I'll make it easier for everyone by posting the picture. That way when the ebay auction is over but this thread lives on, we can still make jokes about finlover!

It seems like they could have easily added some low profile tires in place of the feet and then the phone wouldn't be quite as much of a "low rider".

I tried blowing up the picture to see the extra 2 buttons on the bottom row and would say that the far left one is Flash and the far right one is Redial. In between them are the usual * 0 #.

Amen, brother!!   But maybe we're taking the wrong approach.  Maybe we need to figure out a way to mount a giant rotary dial to a classic car!  Your Imperial already has the perfect place for one on the trunk!

C'mon fin, the flames give it a lot of character. Now, putting dragons and chinese characters on a pair of black and red phones with swapped caps .... that I call tacky.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

I agree, at least get a big number card onto that dial blank on the trunk.

I love the 59 Caddy!! That is the car on top of my wish list, convertible, of course. Along with 58 Edsel, love the touchmatic transmission, a 67 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible, this was my first car when I was 15, and the Corvair Rampside pickup.

One down, 3 to go ;D
