    It's getting hard to look at build pictures I need to see this done and on the road. Great job as always.

    I still say you are gonna need to show this thing next to a bone stock wagon just so everyone can appreciate all of the changes.

    Nicework ! I had a 292 in a 66 Chevy P/U that was a great engine.

    also John Emory , owner of Emory chassis works, came by and got the motor running better and the carbs re tuned , he's the one who did the internal motor work and the one who helped me get this thing running right the first time .

    thanks , I still have the roof, hood and driver side fender to do and some little spots here and there , but its coming along, the clear that I used really has cut down the sanding and buffing time ,
     
  22. I like the contrast of the pipes, coming off of the head, thru the polished aluminum intake you made. Amazing time and talent

    Cody,
    Just a quiet observer but if this car does not get national (international) recognition as one of the finest cars to ever be built I will be shocked. I would never have believed I would have thought this possible for a 59 Chev Station Wagon.
    You are a master and deserve recognition of your skills.

    Cheers from Canada
     
  29. I've been itching to spray it. So hopefully I'll get to it soon. An I understand about polishing. It gets old, quick
