Here are some photos of Joe White's 1956 Firedome 4-door sedan from the 2017 Ypsilanti Orphan Car show. I have to apologize for having incomplete photos of this fine car. I was halfway through, when we were summoned to start the pass-in-review.

Here is a front quarter view of Joe's car with the hood up. The cars with the DeSoto hemi V-8's seem to be of great interest to the crowd, so we leave the hoods open to let the folks gawk.

Here is a photo of Joe's 1956 Firedome dashboard.

I really wanted a rear quarter and engine compartment shot of this car- it is a beauty, and it has power steering and power brakes. The power steering pump has the interesting slotted two-bolt mount that allows for leveling the reservoir.

You have to come back next year Joe, so I can finish the job. We'll give you an extra piece of peach pie......
