Projects 59 chevy wagon in progress

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Cody Walls, Mar 23, 2010.

  1. I just read all 80 pages of this! Truly an inspiring work of art. It's the threads like these that make the H.A.M.B. such a great place. I've always been a wagon fan, and just recently bought a 1959 pontiac wagon, so I was searching "wagon" when I saw this thread. Excellent work and craftsmanship abound in this build, and I think those who take the time to read through it all are better for it! I just moved to the east coast, so I hope I get the opportunity to see this car one day.

    Thanks for taking the time to post your work Cody, I really enjoyed reading through the thread and watching this masterpiece come together!

    But I noticed you have a different, shiner bumper with the new Merc frontend. Are you still planning to use the old one you made with a 56 Pontiac bumper? The one below? If you're not going use it anymore, do you want to sell it? :D
