    Can someone please help me with ideas for this car? I was thinking a chop, about 4 inches front, and maybe 6 in back, fenderskirts and maybe bellflower exhaust tips. But i mainly want some ideas what to do about it.:confused: Anyone?

    What?
    What Nash?
    Did you take that picture at noon on December 21st?

    How about a daytime shot with the sun behind the photographer's back and on level ground and a light colored background?

    man you don't want to do that to that car, do yourself a favor and let me take it away for ya so you can find something else worth doing. It doesn't look like that big a car so dropping it might not be much of an option but it could use a couple or 3 or 4 inches taken out. Always liked those 37's

    I can do some basic photoshop stuff, but I need a daylight picture, and high quality.

    Would do more but the photo quality is really poor. Take some good, well lit side shots and I'll try again.

    Im looking forward to see what you can do with these pics.. I really like the coupestyle roof too. Great! If you can, i´d like some suggestions on colour too. In my head it should be black, with a traditional flamejob, but.... Thanks! / Jimmie

    I'm not sure if you're familiar with bomb sites but they might have some cars to inspire you. Here's one just for example: http://www.chevybombs.com/

    Lowlow,

    That grille is from a 37 Nash Ambasador, not a Lafayette. The Lafayette grills have horizontal bars. Cool car though...I should know!! :) I pulled the original engine on mine to put in a 57 or 58 looking SBC. Those cars already looked chopped (though some may think not enough!!!)

    Oh.. And i thought the horisontal bar grille was a -38. They look a lot better than mine i think. Found a -41 Packard grille the other day, good chrome and an odd look so im going for horisontal bars anyway.. I will be back for more details.. Thanks for the input! There is not that much info to be found about these cars, so im very greatful.

    I am thinking something different, chop the top, fill in the quarter windows
    and put on a faux carson style top. Skirts, red wheels of course. Remove
    and fill in trunk area.
