The Jalopy Journal
I've probably posted mine before, but here is a recent photo.[ATTACH]
Been this way maybe 10 years? Any day now I will get around to paint...[ATTACH]
I think we hit on the three main reasons:
1) finished car fails to live up to the fantasy
2) building is more fun than owning for some
3) if I...
Holy cow someone put a LOT of work into that one!!
Personally I might go another inch lower in the rear but it looks fine the way it is imo
I have a '54 Ford front bumper and it is too narrow for the rear of a '54 Chevy. This looks thicker as well? I don't think it is '55 Chevy front...
Anybody know what is the rear bumper on this candy red Chevy?
Nice chop on that green '54 Chevy!
That car doesn't need ANYTHING! Beautiful kustom.
Mini me just barfed all over his school hallway, my garage floor and himself, starting 10 minutes before we were going to head out. (Three...
I will be there with my mini me. Can't hardly wait!
Holy cow, is that smooth blue car a Plymouth or Dodge? Talk about transformation! Any shot of the front?

I have two good original GM read side windows (the FIXED kind with the rubber seal all the way around, "business coupe") from a 1952 Chevrolet...
This is the original radiator from my 1953 Chevy 210. I had a new "high-efficiency" 3-row core installed about 10 years ago and had an integral...
Love love love!
What a difference!!
If it's not too late: how did he get started? Inspired by magazines, new someone older who did bodywork, or what?
Love this! Solves my "I like white but all white is a bit too much white" dilemma nicely.
I want to "like" this one over & over!
I knew exactly where it was & had to put a kid to bed so no time to get distracted!
May 1956 Car Craft cover car. Built by Gaylords and possibly the owner. (Article isn't clear on who did the "additional torch work").
Red interior, consider a gold exterior if you don't want to go black.
No, leave it! I was just curious and would have been amazed if it was real, that's all.

Is that '54 Chevy real, or a photoshop? Look at the windshield!
I meant some baby moons.
To be clear, I mean the car looks perfect the way it is (other than the bare centers). It came out wrong.
That Ford doesn't need anything besides hubcaps. If your bud wants to change it this badly tell him to lower it an inch or so all around....
I actually know a guy who chopped one. The side glass was "kind of/sort" of dealt with but I personally did not consider it good enough.
I wasn't going to say anything but I had the exact same thought! I guess the finished product speaks for itself, though?
