I like that!
Oh my god. Cammie and I are literally crying cause we're laughing so hard. That's AWESOME!! Mitch is looking at us like we're retarded. Clearly we're not Mitch Approved...
Like the car, LOVE THE DOG! I need one!
How much you gonna chop?
6 inches. And I'm gonna move the rear window down one inch so it flows a little better with the car. So the roof overall will be chopped 6" but the rear window itself only 5"...
I think I am probably going to do the same with my coupe. I don't want the rear window to be hammered so that I can't see in this coupe so I am going to chop the rear window proportional to the rest but not as much. I think it's little details like that that go a long way when the car is finished.
That's the way to go I think. And it will be (chuckle) Mitch approved.
'36 Plymouth. 16 x 4 Bp is 4.5" They're tough to find but they're out there..
Dreddybear , the car is looking great , great job . Hows that fine hemi motor doing ? Cant wait to see more pics .
Fuckin' Hell, I LOVE this! Dreddybear and Jefferyjames, Thanks to you two I'm NOW thinkin' of chopping mine this much!Don't 'y just love photoshop!Dreddybear, Your ''A'' looks Fuckin' GREAT.
I love the "Mitch Approved ", you need decals
Is the coupe going to be at the Round Up ? ( I just read the rest of the link , lazy mofo ) hopefully I'll see you & Mitch there Will look cool with the height adjustment
700R4 trans going in Carol's Fordoor today ready for the trip .
I think at the very least a "Mitch Approved" award should be given out at the Roundup!
I'm heading to my lab as we speak.
If you look at that picture, you are right moving the rear window down when you chop it. Cool beans. Trent
Got my shock mounts on yeah big whoop wanna fight about it?
Some cool pics though..
Paul, I've got a set of those shocker mounts on my coupe too!!!
Nice work there.
Looking good! This is a cool pic. As it sits in this pic it definitely has a 60's vibe. Love the wheel and tire combo.
I agree! Cool picture! Needs to be flushed a little...
Every little thing is a good thing! Keep at it! A little here a little there and eventually it's all done...
Mine rolls too! Come take a look when You get a minute!
Dreddybear, I have a Bloody BIG Smile on my face, your Coupe looks, Fucking great!
Yours' is rolling and mine gone backwards, lookin' at your Coupe reminds me of mine will look like this weekend.
I really LOVE that black 'n' white picture that Scooter did,just back in the day!
Man... Thats really turning out to be a SOLID build...nice fuckin ideas.
Super nice work dude....
am loving the coupe!! me dream car,but since am only 17 its goin be a while but yours makes it good dreaming about
What a bad ass build, thanks for all the updates,,,,,Sam
Just for reference, we dropped my roof 4 inches and only took 3 out of the rear window. The window was dropped an inch closer to the belt line.
To be honest, I don't mind the look of the smaller window at all but I think this will work better for me. Like JeffreyJames said, it's the little details.
Wow, that looks really good!!
I'm headed out to the shop tonight to wrestle with the engine. I'll let you guys know who wins
Take Mitch and have him wrestle it in. I bet you have a fire lit under your ass now that Lone Star is over and you seen all those cool cars flood the city at once. 6.5 months till you deadline of November and 10 months till you get married. Get on it!!!
On another note I better not pay attention to this thread to much because I have an urge to use my 303 Olds engine instead of my 331 Hemi in the Coupe I am building. Seeing a Hemi being plopped into this car will only cause a decline in progress.
Dreaddybear rules! That cars bad ass! Nuff said!
Wish I could come out and help....I'll be able to lend a hand after August...
That's when all the fun stuff happens, Cant wait!
Just don't wrestle in the same arena as I did you'll come out the winner!
that car kicks major ass! and so does mitch! i request more pics with mitch and the car together! but thats just me...
