    yeah whats up h.a.m.b. i'm not new to this website I just never became a member till now. I'm building a 63 impala ss but i'm doing it a lil different than what we're all used to seeing. Its not a lowrider even though it rides low and it's not a hot rod even though it's fast as hell.It's a traditional 60's style kruiser. I noticed we don't see enough impalas built this way so i decided to do something about it. It's being built as of right now so I will be posting pics soon.

    I'm prospecting for the Sacramento Poorboys. check out our website theoriginalpoorboys.com Sacramento, and look at the blue 62 belair, it's done way cool 60's style. my car is the 63 Cadillac. I'm goin for the 60's look also. strugglin tho, not many 63's done in that style.
     
  8. i'm mulling over the kustom idea with my 62... there's plenty of OG originals, racers, and lowriders, and one non-original isnt gonna kill the herd......
