Daddy Likee.
Do we have to call this a "theme" though?
Maybe inspiration?

Not much for theme cars either. This one is really nicely done though,NOT overdone. I like Chip Fooses P32 also. The level of craftmanship is top notch. Looks much better than those cars with the airbrushed sheetmetal and rivets. The guys at Orange County Choppers build their theme bikes WAY over the top,IMO! Too cartoony. I bet that car's a blast to drive.

I love the car and attention to detail.... but I just cant help but wonder why in every pic I see of it, the driver door looks way out of adjustment. For a car w/ this much work in it, I hope that it is just a failure to latch it all the way.

I noticed it on the pics here and in the R&C feature.

The door is out of alignment. I noticed it too. But I'm wondering if it's more the lighting and angle of the shots???? That really bugged me too.

I've seen this car up close through out the build....
Both doors have a slight over lap and do not need adjustment?!

Hey...Raygun, lets us know either way!?!

I cant put in to word how perfect this car is to me. It takes my 2 longest loves and molds them into one.There are only a very few cars that I can say its perfect don't change anything. This car is one of them. Thanks for showing it Ryan.
