    Before anyone starts to verbally beat the crap out of me I'd just like to say in my defense I'm totally kidding. Well not totally kidding as I've just recentlly scooped up what I believe to be a 34 Chevrolet 3 window. Plans are to make a nice low fenderless retro rod, again kidding with the ratrod talk. Shes a little rough and luckily someone preformed quite a terribly executed top chop. I'm almost certain Ive bitten off more than I can chew with this little gem but hell I figure ya gotta start somewhere. But I suppose more on that later, and now a little about me. I'm 26, live in PA, mechanically inclined, and I have a love for just about anything made back in the day when things were made to last. And heres a few pictures to give you an idea what I got myself into. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

  3. Welcome to the HAMB,-Take your time, and enjoy your project. That could be a nice coupe when your done. The top can be fixed from what I can see. Good luck

    Believe me I have seen worse. Take your time, think your ideas through, talk them over with friends and remember "MEASURE TWICE BEFORE YOU MAKE A CUT".
    Good luck on your build and welcome.

    I love those old chevies, except for the wood. We have termites in the south!
     
  20. My first coupe was a 35 standard 3 window, another car I wish I had back. In fact, my fenders were used as molds for Old Chicago Street Rods in Oregon. Welcome from Edmond OK.
