    I've been lurking around on here for quite a while now. Decided I should post what im working on. I bought this thing last year it was in "good shape" and "ran well". It ended up being very far from that. Got it in the garage and started going through and redoing pretty much everything.

    Ended up getting some steel wheels and some whitewalls and 53 Cadillac caps. Lowered it 3-4 and cleaned up the whole chassis/did all the lines, gas tank, and brakes.

    then the body work started. new floors, lower quarters, tail pan, and some fender work. someone had done some real quality work on this car in the past...
