    Some really really nice stuff and some WTF stuff thrown in, but all of it idea generating and awesome to see.

    Thanks a TON for posting.

    For some of us that can't make it to some of these great shows it is great to see all of the details that probably won't make it to decent magazine coverage.

  7. Thanks for all the kind words....glad to see you guys enjoy the pics.

    I have a pic request...did anyone get a shot of a chopped sedan that was all the way in the back of the fairgrounds at the far left(second to the very last car at end of the row)?I remember it was next to a 32 sedan with an unchopped roof.I wanted to get a pic and check it out,but there was too many people around it....Thanks

    What a great show with lots of stuff you don't see at other shows. Really loved the Peterbuilt, I'd drive it everyday. We had 8 cars there this year (pg 48 first two pics) and 10 members. I was too busy looking at cars and BSing to take pictures myself but lots of great shots here. Thanks for sharing.

    This car is fiberglass but looks like it'd be real steel. The interior is even made to look authentically old...neat little car.

  11. I notice a trend toward hot rods lower in the rear. I don't get it. It looks wrong to me. Am I alone in this?

    I'll probably get a ton of shit for saying this, but for every nice car posted here, there were 2 that I'd rather be shot in the chest with projectile diarrhea than drive.

    Even still, looks like there were some real nice cars there

    No you're not alone. I think it looks terrible. Customs are low in the back, hot rods are high in the back. They look broken when they are lower in the back.

    Great pics as always. Thanks!
     
  16. Is this a hamb'r ride? It makes me seriously reconsider the planned chop on my '40 pontiac which has the same roof line as the chevy. I really could not stop staring at this car... Anyway, I'd like to talk to the owner.
     

  17. I believe Gambino Kustoms did this car..so he's the guy who could answer all your questions.

    makes me think about a big steamy pile of turd. the main question is why would anyone build such an abomination? did this thing get driven in, or did it get dropped there like a turd?

  24. Thanks for the pics guys....but is it just me or are MOST of the cars in the pics absolute abortions?!

    There's a proliferation of some (well-intended but) utterly ugly cars there. Has good taste become such a rarity?

    I know what you are saying, I don't like them too low in the back or too low period. Alot of doors on the grass, some don't look too drivable, or a least that much fun to drive without worry. The way I like to drive I think I would scrape the bottoms off of some of those things on the highways and roads around here. Great pics, some nailed it, but most looked slapped together. It's all in the name of fun though.

    Thanks so much for posting all the photos. I realize a TON of effort goes into posting and it's much apprecaited.

    Like most are stating, some of them really weren't worth the space on your memory card. Sure would have loved to have seen some cool kustoms and less "hot rod" crap.

    Man, do those guys REALLY think their cars look good???:confused: :eek: :confused:
