The talent on the hamb blows me away. subscribed
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!
Just amazing!!!!! i almost like looking at it more then mine!.. lol
I want to check it out in person. Maybe when Corry heads down or something...
I've scene this car in person and its going to be top notch all the way.....keep up the killer work cody!...looks awesome....i'm thinking these hamb guys have a problem with us southern delaware guys liking our cars so low?!?!?!
This Texan never said nothing bad about that car being so low! 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.
lol thanks man , the radiator is a re pop for 57 t bird ,
lol man , your merc is so bad Assssssssss,i cant wait to see that thing finished , yah just give me a heads up when u guys are comming down to check out the wagon .
And to everyone else thanks again for all the complements it realy means a lot ,
Just found this build, and subscribed. Awsome work man, and hope you meet your dead line this year for the show. Would love to see it in Columbus this year.
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 but I hope to have it finished by the end of the year. But well see.
So I got a bunch of stuff done today . Finishing up a lot of looses ends And the things that doesn't really so much progress , so here is the only a couple if pics ...
That dash is first class
I never envisioned a '59 dash without the smaller gauges smoothed out like that. It's a beautiful thing. Niccceee.
A little lower please.
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 also started on the stainless tube for the sparkplug wires today
