Another Weesner Inspired Hot Rod (Lit Up)

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by 193257, Jan 10, 2011.

  1. I dont think WOW truely covers what has been achieved so far. But WOW.

    His shop is like a Science Lab, exactly as it should be. The old advertising signs for all walls are fantastic, and the Green Rod in the back ground is another highlight, any more pics?
    To just decide to build a better suited chassis is great and to have state of the art equipment is magic.

    The Results will be Priceless !!

    Wish I had just a little of that talent!!

    Very impressive. It takes a lot of artistic vision to be able to do that kind of work.
    I'll be watching this build.

    Amazing ,thanks for posting Jimmy's builds.
    At the start of the Emerald Tide thread you said Jimmy was working on a
    handbuilt hotrod that was taking to long to finish.
    Did this car get finished ?
    Thanks.

  5. holy whole....of holes.....;):D

    Craftsman.

    Interesting to see that despite radically (but tastefully) changing the chassis so much he still retained the front beam axle (although looks like it's dropped waaaaaaay deep...).

    wow.

    We here in the St. Louis area often kid about Jimmy being from a different planet.

    Unfortunely he hasn't finished that car yet but you can bet your sweet bippy he will. I'll have to post up some pics of the chassis. You talk about slick. I don't know if you can see it or not but it's under the rack that has the firebird on it. Rick

    Jimmy wants to retain the look of the truck as much as possible. Some times it's hard to make a car or truck look and sit like the artist draws it and still function properly. Jimmy decided this was the best way to lower the truck and still retain the ride because this truck will be driven. It's a shame the frame will be covered up because it's a thing of beauty.

    What are those rings in the water of the lake from? Thats where I dumped my body tools after I saw this thread. What a priviledge to see a master craftsperson creating such fab stuff. The profile on that cab is sweet. Thanx for sharing this major talented builders work with us. Amazing ~sololobo~
     
  18. That frame is a work of art, this is going to be a great build to follow.

    With the amount of equipment and room in that shop, it would be a pleasure to work like that.

    WOW Jimmy

    Boy that's some talented builder. I do my own chops--one anyway, and similar hot rod trucks in my tiny shop at home with some tools but a minimum I think. People like my work--amateur stuff-and I drive and keep my few builds, and I really enjoy seeing somebody do it all so correctly. I do the best I can and it ends up looking OK to most, but I'd have to have some super training to operate an English Wheel or half the cool tools he has. I don't have those kinds of tools and don't want them, because I'm not that great a craftsman. This guy succeeds in a really clean build at each bend in the road and makes something difficult look doable. I think its doable for him and the master builders and appreciate how talented Jimmy is. Great job Jimmy

    Awesome. The craftsmanship and attention to detail on Emerald Tide was astounding.

    Since you're an Art Whore Coby and the Emerald Tide IS art you should buy it to add to the collection. Do you have enough wall space for it?

    I'm sure this will be just as detailed as the Tide!! It is awesome to see in person. I can't wait to see this one!! I think it is quite a honor to have someone build something from an artist, let a lone twice. What a great combo, great artist and builder.
