so you are saying that his is done wrong?
It still could be saved...
Put the fenders back on to hide the 4 bars,
replace the dual quads and scoop with 6 or 8 Strombergs,
Skinny biasply's and cheaterslicks on solid steel's or magnesum Halibrands,
replace the headers.
I like the colorchange...
i think the car as it is now could find its place anywhere from the 60's until now, very classic styled hot rod. when red it just screamed 80's-90's street rod, all it needed was some swoosh graphics
This is opinions right?
Well I like the OPs red one better than his black one.
I like 5wcoupehunter's (the one I posted) better than the red one.
The exhaust is all wrong and such a focal point, & that point being all wrong in terms of flow with the lines of the car. There's a visually hole at the cowl. The rear tire doesn't fit, the visually rake is off (probably because of the exhaust) and it could be lowered in the ass end some.
If I was asked which two I like better, it's the red one.
If I were given the black one, it look like 5wcoupehunters before Id drive it and I sure wouldn't make it look like the red one.
steel wheels, bias ply, multiple carbs, that will go away again, same as the rat rod fad did
so you would change the black one to look like someone else's car ? my point exactly
No, you just don't know what you are talking about.

Start a different opinion thread- which is better your black one or the one I posed. You'll see
Agree with metalshapes, except AFBs could fly but too shiny, adjustable wanna be Hilborn scoop should go. Some cars look good without fenders, not so much with this one.
Some not so boring ones.
not trying to compete with you or anyone one else. just thought i would post my work, should have known i would run into a dick like you
It'll still be here. Id drive both
thats meant for 31 vicky
I don't think the wheels are that bad. Here is a thread that shows they can be ok
Well I guess, since you asked...
The red version looks like it was built with a good plan and great execution. It all flows together with great proportions and a killer traditional look.
The black version looks like a good plan that was poorly executed.
3 2 1
that would be 31 vicky
Red one, timeless. Black one, 1992 Speedway Garage sale clad and dated.
At least we agree on 1/2 of this statement.
I think some of the folk who said they like the red version are showin their age....just sayin
At Which part did I piss you off ?
Maybe it was the part you asked for opinions.
At which part did I personally attack you?
Maybe it's right after you called me a dick ?
Yeah it's coming !
So when asked "which is after?" By steve, you said "red one"
I'm under the assumption, you took the black version and created the red one - after.
Great job on fixing the black one and Giving the car back some dignity.
I like them both, but I'd hate to know I spent the time and money that it took to go from the red one to the black one.
Enjoy your creation and dont ask for opinions here, you'll only set yourself up to get your feelings hurt.
I don't consider my self OLD,middle aged maybe but old is a state of mind.
And yes the red one is nicer.
T man said it best,the black one looks like speedway clearance sale special.
i like fenders, i don't care for red or black, i dislike parallel four bars, i like sbc, but not the look of a blower, i prefer other brands over fords, i like 3 window coupes, the tires look goofy.
you did a lot of good work in the transformation, it looks well done and i bet you had a good time doing it.....just my opinion.
i'm 26. the red one looks better. your point?
Red most definitely,the black car looks like you wanted a t bucket.... Sorry,you asked...
So you post here asking for opinions and resort to name calling when you don't get the answer you want? An armchair psychologist would say you are insecure and overly sensitive. Why get all pissy when people give their opinions that you have asked for?
Oh, in my opinion you fucked up the red car with the changes you made. I only say that because you asked. Otherwise I would have kept my opinion to myself.
If you expected everyone to fall in love with your work you are right about being on the wrong forum. I for one like the red version,the black version looks like the cover of a Speedway catalog.
