Dragging this old thread up....I know I know.
I'm about to start bagging my 53 olds and had a couple questions.
1) Are you running the stock...
That's a cool little car!
We always stay right up by I-10 in gulf port. rates are a lot cheaper and its all about cruising so the short 10 minute drive to the main drag...
How long are the lower links?
I really like the tool box in the bed look!!!
How wide is the axle under that Buick?
Cool. See you at the Bayou Round up!
I love the whole thing! Chop, Back AND THE FRONT. Good looking car IMO.
Question what did you do to the bumpers to get that satin silver look?...
Can't wait! I'll be there.
Anyone going to the HAMB cruise in Thursday at CTC?
Be nice to see a bunch of HAMB friendly cars and people!!
I'll be there though my car probably will not. Most of the Hamb friendly guys in the area that I talked to will be there.

I tried giving my car a CLR bath last weekend...
Who's front end did you use? Also what all came with the kit? I noticed the two main rails were not welded together so I was thinking (mistake I...
Looking good! Couple of questions. Is this going to be a four link with a track bar? How long are those links? They look kind of short.
Are these frames known to be weak? This looks exactly like the frame under my Olds and I'm concerned about it even more so after reading you bent...
Can't wait to see this thing done! That's a neat trick with the Dykem.
I like it.
Its hard to say preformance matters when you are un willing to use the latest technology IMO.
Great story! This is a memory your family will have forever. Some people live a whole life without doing something cool like this.
WOW just WOW. You sir inspire me to keep at it!
Awesome! Get it running, put new tires, service the brakes and drive it. Love the way it looks. No amount of $$ can buy time.
I saved this one. In the process of putting it back on the road (WITHOUT THOSE WHEELS!!)
Old man used it on his farm for years before my...
Very cool! So did you get the chassis with the 394? Would be really cool to put as many original parts back on this car as possible!
Turbo!! Turbo LS.....now I'm REALLY watching!!
Great trip! You should really be a writing this for a magazine or book or something. I hope to take a trip like this with my family one day....
Well done! Love the trim and the color. The Story speaks for itself and really makes the car even more special. Thanks for the good read.
My kids named our car. When it showed up on the tow truck it was covered in Rust. As most young kids would they thought it was a POS and needed...
Sorry I am using them in my car. Just to add some tech they are 2"-3" too narrow. I'm going to make some side panels with arm rest to make up...
WOW really nice looking car. What all have you done to it?
Can you post a picture of the gages mounted in the car? 4 air gages seems like it would take up a lot of space.
