  2. Bravo, my friend! What radiator is that? The gauges in the ashtray looks cool, I like that a lot! Your creativity and eye for things are great eye-candy! I don't even look forward to my magazine subscriptions, anymore. Hahaha Thanks kind sir!

    This Texan never said nothing bad about that car being so low! :D Personally, I love it! It only adds character to it on top of the beautiful craftsmanship.

    The gauges taking up the ash-tray space looks like a pretty original idea to me. I wasn't too sure about the gauges coming through the top of the dash but after picturing the ash-tray gauges with it, I can see how it would all tie together very well. Pretty cool.

    Thanks man I'm glad u like the wagon , but i don't think the wagon will make columbus this year there's just still way too much to do in too little time , and since im trying to do everything my self it's taking forever :confused: but I hope to have it finished by the end of the year. But well see.

    I never envisioned a '59 dash without the smaller gauges smoothed out like that. It's a beautiful thing. Niccceee.

    So saturday I got a chance to go to the local scrap yard and pick up some of the things I need to finish the other header , and today here is what I got accomplished. I had no plan on how I was going to run the back pipes I just kinda went with the flow of thing and I was pretty happy the way they turned out .

    I was just introduced to this thread by a friend yesterday. Wow, this is incredible. Woodpecker your imagination and creativity brought to life through your fabrication skills are simply killer. I have really enjoyed cruising through this thread. I have a brother in Dover and hope that maybe one day when visiting I can get to see your fabulous wagon. I can't wait for the next post.
    Congratulations on a job well done
