    For me, that’s way too much chop. Throws the car’s proportions all out of whack. But I like lots of greenhouse on old cars.

    Gotta agree... 1/2 as much would be a lot on that car... looks like a safe was dropped on it.

    Very mild custom. Looks like just hubcaps and lowered but looks good.

  25. My '50 Wayfarer. Chop started in '06. This pic was taken in '14, right before I traded it away for a crotch rocket.
    Bought the car back about a year ago. It's stored away in a conex until I can get the time and space to work on it

  30. thank you for the kind words. I was super burned-out on old cars, and life in general at the time, and needed a change. When it came up for sale I couldn't bear the thought of anyone else having it, and not following through with my original vision, so I HAD to have it back. It'll never leave again.
