    Lately, one Olds has been enough. Went for nearly two years experimenting with flames. Got hit at an intersection. Time for a change. Figure I'm going to need to put the flames back on to be happy..........

    Really enjoy seeing the three different roof heights lined up for comparison.

    I did get the car from where you see it sitting there. I friend of mine went with a pocket full of cash i sent him, and a couple of hours later the last owner decided to sell it. I have some cool ideas for the build on it. I have been buying parts and hope this winter is when i will get going on it hard. I will start a thread when i get building on it.

    So was the shop just able to pull the quarter and straighten all the sheetmetal or was it replaced? It looks good though.

    I thought for sure the panel below the trunk lid would have to be replaced, but they worked it all out and you can still hang a magnet anywhere. Still all original....... Just had to smooth it back out.

    Thanks BadFish! My first "custom". I had a pro weld the stub on (it had a 70's Trans am stub tacked on when I bought the car & it was very scary), I'm doing everything else myself but the finish body and paint.

    That hood deal has been a trip but it works pretty good. The rear guides and latch set-up is getting pretty complex because of the wedge shaped hood. I'm incorporating a late 90's caddy trunk latch and pull down motor to lower and raise the hood straight up in the back to clear the fenders.

    Your 55 is cool too. How did you finish the hood ribs where the rocket was? I had planned to keep the rocket but shave the Olds emblem.

    Don't mean to over do it with pics of the same car on this thread, but here's just another look on the same car with a simple wheel/tire change. I'm getting ready for a weekend at the Jalopy Showdown in PA. Rockabilly bands and a chance to take your rod out on an old stock car dirt track for a couple of laps. Then I'll go back to the chrome steelies and blackwalls for a more dragstrip look. I'd just like to impress opon others the fun of changing up and enjoying the different styles with simple changes. Main thing is, have fun!
     
  23. I like your new paint scheme!

    Here are some pics of mine:

    I plan on lowering it some in the back, put fender skirts on it and flake the roof. Was thinking either gold or red. Any thoughts?
