    Here's a sneak peak of my 5 window build. It should be completed for next summer. I'll try to post more pictures later.

    Whoa!! I'll be keeping an eye for the pics. Until then give us some specs on the body, engine, trans and rear. That thing is cool!

    Subscribe! Lets see some pics of your Nailhead mounting and firewall treatment to fit. I also have a Nailhead powered 5W in progress....

    looks good so far!

    Since the Buick engines are so long I had to flatten out the bottom of the stock firewall and make a recess for the distibutor. I also had to move the radiator forward about 1/2 inch.
    Here's a picture of the front and rear.

    Thanks for all the complements. I've had the car a long time and actually drove it for a while. But I was young when I originally built it with limited funds. I tore it apart 5 years ago and have been working on it ever since, making sure I do everything exactly how I want it even though it's taken longer. This board has been really inspiring and has been a world of knowledge and ideas. I'll post some pics of the initial build when I get a chance.

    Looking Good! Keep up the good work. Just finished my 5W a few weeks ago. 3-1/2yr project. Check it out if you get a chance. Again, thanks for sharing.

    Excellent workmanship. I wondered how you got the nailhead in there cos they're so long. Do you have any pics of your firewall treatment? I have a fully re-coed 401 sitting in the shed for a 32-5w project. Even have a set of those Buick valve covers which my son gave me for a Fathers Day present. Any plans for the interior yet?

    depending on your steering set-up you may need one of my "Mini" starters to get everything to fit with room to spare. It will also fit right in being chromed.

    What a great looking car. I can wait until you can get it outside and get a full shot of it. How cool!
