    Well,I don't think mine is notched either,it's like these cars were meant for bags.. I looked under the car and there is nothing resembling a notch,but you're right,there is one hell of a factory kick up in the frame

    OK - I'm inspired! Here's mine... ...other than the 17's and new top it's an untouched original. Not really my style to keep things original, but it's an original 4-speed car. I kinda like it the way it is...

    sinticket, looking great...

    johnjan, you'll probably get grief from a few for the modern rolling stock, but that thing is beautiful, including the wheels...I like Rodlites

    I never have liked green too much, but that is looking sweet. I can't wait to see it done with that white interior.

    I think the bell flowers are the obvious answer but I hate the way they look so from a design standpoint I would say out the back. Throw the rules out and go for what looks best or what ever you like best.

    As I said, Gold's for Hunnies and Green's for the Money! Looking great, too bad the Iron Lords put that pre-62 clause in the official Lords Doctrine. Would have made a nice addition.

    That exactly what I am thinking!!! Just courious, cause I really like bellflowers too...but right now im thinking out the back is the way to go. Jeffrey, That pre 62 rule was to keep your S10 out of the club.
