Opinions needed, what do you think of the transformation ?
not a trick question
Which is the before?
they're two different cars? the same car before and after?
Red coupe looks like a true "hot rod". The other photo....well, a bit too "blingy".
Which is the after?
the car was red when i bought it, it was done back in the 90's. pics of it look great the car didn't
It was before the pic of the red one showed up lol
I like blowers.
Red is nicer of the two.
I like the red one better
Probably because that exhaust looks bad to me.
Hate to tell you but the red one looks better!

Looked waaaaay better before.
You asked...red pic is much better.
red car is a street rod not a hot rod. i think i'm in the wrong forum. haha
Well, I like the black version better. Sure the polished engine is kinda flashy, but overall I like it way better than all those "slammed" on the ground A's that are so popular lately. The red version is just, well, "yawn" to me. Oh, and I think that the headers are not as bad as those "zoomies".
Tell us more about it. what frame? how much did you channel the body? Motor specs? tranny?
i like it. the black looks more of a early 90s street trod to me. a lot of billet.
This car would have looked good in the 80's and would look good now,,a simple understated hot rod never goes out of style,,sorry,the red one does it for me. HRP
I like both, but personally, I'm not a fan that header style & that big rear tire/wheel combo. I'd love to see balanced front & rear wheels (preferably bias plys) & lake style headers. Nice car, either way. Keep up the good work!
I think the black version may be more steet rod than the red version. Polished four bars front and rear, fat radials, electric fan, disc brakes, large blob of polished and chrome engine, needs some colored pieces to break it up abit.
I think the black version looks very nice, and appears to be well done, just not what i'm into. As long as you like it than you are good to go, drive and enjoy it, that's what it's about.
boxed and crossed membered A frame, 355, BDS blower 600 H.P, 9" with 3.70.
400 turbo. not channeled, 4 inch chop
I like them like the black one when they are done rite.
Like this one.
I like the red one personally, but maybe some pie crust slicks would help the black version, gives off a 60's drag vibe to me
