    Yes. Most of west Michigan was settled by Dutch. Mom's Maiden name, Bouwman. Grandma, Boersma.
     

  7. That is nice, those are Frisian surnames, I am also from Friesland. those surnames are well known here, you hardly hear in the rest of the Netherlands. my Buick comes from Michigan again, also funny !!

    It seems no matter where the '57 cars come from the rear bumper corners are all rotted out.
    GOOD LUCK finding replacements & IF you do once they get blasted to remove the rust before they are re-chromed you end up with big holes.
    AGAIN, IF you find some be ready with the $$$$.
     
  9. Are Those things So hard to find? My Search for those bumpers corners is Just begun

    Witch price are they going for?

    You may be able to find them cheaper, but it is very difficult.

    Then, more than likely they will have to be blasted & chromed which of course adds to the expense.
