The Jalopy Journal
Check out cruising Grand Ave in Escondido on Friday nights. Lots of cool cars out there.
Check out the work FuManchu has done on Roger Mirets Chevy. This should give a very good idea of what is needed, pics on the first page....
Exactly! This is fairly easy to do and can be very cheap or expensive. On my 52 I used Posies springs with a 74 Nova rear using their saddles,...
I saved these a while back. I got them off of this site.
It looks good as is. I have a 52 and been debating the paint scheme. I am think a flaked roof with subtle lace panels.
**Update** The crew at North Texas Customs has finished their part of the build. Tyler I cant thank you and your crew enough. THe car is now at my...
Awesome car!! Thanks for sharing.
50 fenders are diffrent from 51's. The grilles are diffrent, they may be able to work but not without some metalwork.
Great work so far. Your craftsmanship is definately top notch. How about some more info on reversing the hassle when you get a chance.
Thats a clean little coupe. Its almost impossible to find one that clean. Good luck with the build.
If it does it will be 1 to 2 inches at most.
Checkout the silver slipper. I believe it was built by 51gringo here on the HAMB. That chop is perfect!!
As long as your not running slicks and have a suspension that hooks up you'll be fine. I ran this same setup in my OT 86 monte in high school and...
It looks great with the vouges.
It looks pretty solid. Clean up a little, lower it a bit and drive the damn thing! It looks like your pretty off to a pretty good start. Search...
This is awesome. I love how very well thought out everything is. You make it look too easy.
Beautiful work. Very clean and thought out.
Keep an eye on my build thread. The guys over at North Texas Customs installed the Gambinos Notch and will be closing off my trunk as well....
I just turned 30 in July. My 52 is my first "old car" but I have helped build several others.
Checkout EMS for patch panels. I went with these for my 52. The place I ordered them from is local to you in Acworth I believe.
I agree. When is was looking for my 52, I must have come across at least 10 cars I had to have. Each one had its own issues but I held out and...
The trim is in suprisingly good condition. Glad you pulled the good stuff and hauled off the scrap.
Well here is some good news to come home to. Uncle Sam made sure he got us home in time for Thanksgiving. We where scheduled to be home around mid...
I plan on driving this car alot, so I would like to keep it.
That looks great! The aluminum work is AMAZING. I'm glad wea re moving right along. Tyler did you get the tailpan when I wordered all the...
Beautiful Work Tyler! Man your boys are doing a hell of a job. I knew I was in good hands bringing it to you. If anyone in DFW needs some work...
Wow! I really love watching your posts, your documentation is flawless. You have created the perfect chop. Although the internet connection sucks...
Man o' man. I just got on a computer and logged on to see if anything new was going on. What a surprise to see some updates on my car. Yes this is...
Thanks man. Here's some more pics.
