    Great thread! Selfishly speaking, I am disappointed that I'll likely never see this car finished. Chop, you are certainly a maestro of metal. I look forward to reading your other threads.

    Thanks to this thread I had the balls to chop my 52 chevy... pretty close to the same body style. Even know he sold it, its because of his step by step pics I went for it. So thanks buddy.

    Damn! This thread would make a great book, but I don't care much for the ending. Hopefully, Flop will get to finish this build. Maybe with someone else footin' the bill it'll be easier to get done. Great look on your Chevy chop Driveway Builder. I have a buddy that's just about to cut the top on his '52 after studying Flop's work on this thread. Who knows how many cool cars will result from his inspiration. Good luck Flop, and thanks!

    Wow, I remember seeing the very first post on this car in 08' and looking forward to every single update . Crazy how time flies. Still one of my favorite 50s chop on here. Sad to see her go to new owner, but hey atleast he's keeping in touch with you. On to the next ! Which is the 47 right ? Lol sorry follow you on IG 😎

    Flop,
    Just spent a few days going through your thread off and on from start to finish. Truly an inspiring build not to mention the level of talent you have acquired at a similar age as mine (I'm 26). Have to pay ya a little respect for sharing such well documented information with the members here. Look forward to seeing any additional work you share in the future! Happy new year:D

    Haven't posted but a few times but thought this thread needed a post. Spent the better part of 10hrs at work going thru every single page. Truly an inspiration to all of us. Hope the updates continue

    Simply astounding build thread! Did this car ever get finished? Is there a newer thread on the HAMB?
     
  14. Flop sold the Poncho awhile back. Been wondering if the new owner ever finished it up myself too.

    Flop's dedication to his work is not only admirable, it is downright unbelievable.

    I can’t see the pics....they are blurry with a photobucket logo. Is there a way to see them? I’m new to this so I don’t have the slightest!
