    Looking good! Is that a Volvo 142 in your driveway? How unusual are those in the states! :D

  9. That looks great, I was following your other thread waiting for an update. Great looking car.
     
  10. Great proportions Brant, it looks lower and longer, without looking squished. Nice job!

    Funny...then you don't have to ride in it at Speedweek.

    Me too. Bonneville here we come! Or maybe sooner...:D

    I am going to drop the back some. I need to redo the notch in the frame and redo the shock mounts. I am not gonna bag it or make it a rocker scrapin' machine. I am looking to get a more late forties early fifties custom feel. I don't mind them higher with black walls.

    Looks good. Is that your old truck before the clip and rear end swap in one of the picture backrounds?
