    Way to go, looks very nice.

    Nice going Poncho! I wanted to see the work in progress just as much as finding pics of the finished product. Which should I review first - again?

    Man, I don't know what to say... you somehow managed NOT cut too much outa that roof. It looks soooooo fucking killer! People often take too much out, even a little too much is WAY too much. The coupe looks as if it were born that way. Congratulations, I am officially impressed. I have a '52 coupe and chopping it never even crossed my mind... until tonight. More pics please?

    how much is the suspension lowered? and how was it done? That car sits perfect, And as was said before the proportions on the top are right on.

    Was it chopped 4" front rear and back or 4 at the front and more at the back?

    I have a 51 with the same top and I have been contemplating chopping it but I wanted it chopped more like your car is so that it flows with the body lines so I've been trying to figure out how much of a chop to do to it.

    That car is killer........
