Before and much after! Gary
1964, 1988 and now.
Here's the 34 I did last year I have more of it but this was half way through the build
Is that 4" out of the top? And angled?
Here's mine straight off the streets of New York in August 2014 and now in the UK in November 2015.
What's the relationship of this ride and the Beatnik Bandit? They're clearly family.
Good eye but 3 in the back and 3 1/2 out of the front and leaned
3 yr project, week ends and evenings in my garage
Lots of time and work. FUN !!!!!! And more fun I,m sure.
still love them skirts!
Mine 3.5 now and I'm trying to keep some self control before I go to put the top back on and windup takin it to 4.

On my thread.
I'm not going to mess up this one though with a "before" and no "after"

Picked this Impala up in mid-June.
This is about a month ago, still working on it.
My father-in-law brought these pictures over yesterday. Kind of a before and after I think. This is a car he built before he joined the Marines in WW 2. When he got back his dad had given it away.
Father & son project, completed in July.
No real relationship other than the fact that I have owned and restored a few roth cars and decided to build one of my own. I wanted it to look like something he may have built back then
Wow. Even MORE impressive then, what you did!
Hey Mark this don,t look like a Rattle Can to me!! HA Ha!! Great Job on the Impala . Like the saying goes The top goes down the price goes up!! George
