    Holy crap. There was a 59 that I was in love with before we moved towns. But Jesus this this is simply incredible. Where to start.


    Domed bolts - genius
    Smoothed engine - gorgeous
    Paint colors - perfect
    Hubcaps - smooth and clean
    Door buttons - brilliant
    Dash - beautiful
    Grill - looks like it came that way


    The simple fact that you seem so nonchalant about how beautifully your build is coming along says a lot about you too. Your work is amazing and top notch. I hope to see it sometime. Lets see... are there any good tourist spots near you lol?

    If you're not having a good time on the build, what's the point? You tend to get sloppy when you are fatigued. Working all day on somebody else's wheels dosen't leave a lot of energy for your own at night, especially when you have little ones at home.

  17. So I guess it won't be at the Showdown this weekend, hopefully you will be there.

    No concerns here. I just sympathize with the pressure put on you to get the build done on someone else's schedule. I know family comes first with you. It took me six years to build my ride, which doesn't compare to your build, and that's because I built it with a lower priority than the needs of my family. As long as you continue to put them first, they will enjoy the car as much as you will for years to come. ~Chris

    Hey cody, haven't been on here for a long time.

    nice to see you are still making progress on the loveliest wagon in all of time. you defo got carried away from your initial 'daily cruiser' project though.

    Are you planning to put that old boat on the show circuit? I reckon you could clean up everywhere and make yourself a very good professional reputation just by showing this thing off.Orders will come flying in. You'll just have to learn to compromise on customer cars, otherwise you'll only ever make 1 every 3 years.

    sorry guys its been so long since the last update , things have been crazy hectic here , with the family work and everthing else going on , I have been able to work on the wagon , but I havnt been able to get as much as I wanted to accomplished, so I doubt the wagon will be done for The Rodders Journal show , there still so much to do and the time keeps dwindling down , I still don't have a bunch of my pieces back from chrome yet that I sent out at the end of December , and things keep on messing up causing me more time , so im done stressing over it , it will get done when it gets done and that might not be untile next year , enough of my rambling on so here are the pics
