I may have posted this in the wrong section originally... but Nadine (1950 Cadillac) was sold back in March, looking for the new owner. Car was...
I took my car to a shop that another Hamb'r had used, and dropped her off to be subframed and bags installed (yeah...I know, bags are for...
Yes, I remember your build. I drooled at every post! I was much more active back in 2007-2010. Been too busy the last few years, back then, we...

The ordered the 3" drop front/rear, and when it was installed, it dropped the car more than that. Didn't take long to blow out the shock it was so...
Just using the front clip and rear axle of the Buick. Not using the whole frame. Track width is very comparable. I don't know the front numbers...
And that is where she is at as of about 45 minutes ago...
Test fitting the wire wheels. They fit! We are also using the Buick's rear end.
Separating the Buick.
Time for the '53[IMG]
Ok, Some pictures! Here she sits a few weeks before dropping her off. She was lowered on Jamco springs.
Here she is with the Donor 1994...
It's giving me hell uploading them to the site, so after lunch I'll upload them to my server and post them. I won't leave you hanging too long, LOL.

I've shared and I've learned from many on here, time for me to share some more....
Haha....Maybe if i got the seats fixed (they look pretty, but lean back way too far). They hurt MY back, and I don't have any health issues.
BTW, if I had something like a 1936 roadster, and wanted to drive 1500 miles to a Billetproof show, my family would want to go. I couldn't imaging...
I am split on this....I have a decent car (driver), and I own a nice trailer (open, not enclosed). I enjoy driving to Billetproof, but that is...
Ben did a great job on that promo for the event. He's been to most of the Billetproof events. Can't beat a 7 min clip on NBC in the 14th largest...
Booked my room at the Sleep Inn, and pre-registered. Not sure if I am gonna help at the show this year, or just hang out. Definetly want to ride...
20mpg, and she doesn't break down....need i say more?
5.3l Vortec and a 4l65e tranny out of a 2008 Silverado. I wish it had a 6.2l, but that's too much $$$. Did about 10.3 @ 76 in the 1/8th. Stock '53...
It's definetly not "Rat Rod" style...
It's a new breed of car customization... Hillbilly style.
At least they were not "In the show"...
Here's his buddy that ended up in the parking lot too. There was a third, but I didn't get a picture of it.
Had we come back sunday, I would have taken you down. I went straight home and re-geared, and now I sail right past Jason :D.
Did you see the Hillbilly specials that did not get into the show? They ended up in the spectator parking lot.
3 hours till gates open!
We are all in the parking lot of the hotel right now. iPad's rule.
I had a similar brake issue on the caddy. On the way to bulletproof florida last year, it got to the point only the right front was working, and...
Holy sweetness....A wagon on a wagon. Lookin good! I always love the trophies.
