    I've posted mine in similar threads before, but not for quite a while. At least PARTS of it are finished.

    Great thread. It's got me motivated to keep working on my car. Sometimes I get to thinking it'll never look nice and get discouraged but some of these before and afters make me feel a lot better!

    Sailingadventure - The 'Vette is stunning. The white/blue pinstriped accents are perfect, just enough. The car really ''flows''. Bonus: the paint dabbing chalk markers would cringe at it!

    This is a `37 Studebaker with a 401 Nailhead Buick, non Hamb friendly suspension, (late model Corvette) It`s been sectioned 3" and has `37 President front sheet metal which makes it 9" longer than a Dictator Coupe which is what it started out as.. The wheelbase is 125"
    Anybody can fix a nice car

    Heres my sons 1962 Pontiac Catalina. Purchased out of Newark NJ in a heavy industrial area where I swear the ground was bubbling from all the toxic waste. This actually was a decent car until a truck backed into it and later it caught fire. We bought it when he was 14 now 24. Heres his somewhat build thread. http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/my-62-pontiac.336274/ 39869_154946267849107_100000012034843_515178_4612009_n.jpg 46148_154944281182639_100000012034843_515150_1533501_n.jpg

    Here is my daughters 39 std coupe bought in 1974 for $200.
    Second picture is on the bicentennial July 4 1976.
    The third picture is recent after an 80s removal of the top and other mods.

    I'm guessing (hoping) that those are just the rollers for the paint shop.

    This Roadster was channeled 6" . I put it back to stock and finished it in less than a year but after that I've been going through Banger engines. (3 this year!) The last one broke a Scat crank. I'm now running a C crank with my fingers crossed. I'm currently gathering parts to build a 5 main lower end for it!:D

    My latest project. 1964 Corvair Greenbrier Sport wagon. Took less than a month. All I had to do was send it to Maaco for the final topcoat, install the new trim that came with the deal and source some correct tires and wheel covers. Still working on the interior; new seat covers for all three bench seats and then new seat belts to secure the grandkids when we take them in the Greenbrier to Ice Cream!

    What you guys do is nothing short of jaw-dropping in some cases.:eek: That level of skill & craftsmanship is otherworldly IMO. Great, great thread.
