    Glad to see you are street legal and the car is at home
    I know you are never completely done, but this has been a great build.
    You turned your vision into reality, well done Cody!

    As 1959Nomad says projects are never "finished" but your car is absolutely fantastic. Great job. I know you are proud of this very unique ride.

    Monday updted, sorry its taken so long to get back to you guys, with the wagon being home now , shows coming up , ive been extreamly busy ,also ive been running into a lot of little stupid things along the way, I fugared out the rear problem , the drums were rubbing the backing plates , also the fuel regulator took a crap , ive been threw 3 different speedometers, another speedometer cable, and the list goes on, but I have managed to rack up a good amount of miles now going back an forth to work in it , I finished up the rear cargo area/ 3 row seat , and im just missing around finishing up all the little things , here are some pictures

    This thing is just plain AWESOME!!
    Hat off to you Cody...
     
  22. holy guacamole. love it.
     
  23. Looking Really good,

    Let me know your final solution on the speedometer, I have been through 3-4 and can't get the speedometer and odometer to both work on any of them. I can bring you some broken spares to the Showdown.
    I refuse to spend the $300-$400 to have one rebuilt

    I'm sure that the 59 looks amazing but with the new changes to the forum, I can't see any of the images!

    Anyone able to help me out with this?
     
  29. I'm having similar issues Ole Red, I can't see the pics either.
