  6. Very kool car indeed, tried a few times to get clear pictures but there were so many people around it made it hard to do. Congrats and like alot of others have said- finished or not that car is over the top
     
  7. Wow... congrats Fabian! I have pics somewhere of it years ago sitting at your house, your son was on his tricycle then. Crazy... Car looks so nice.

    I'd love to get you some of those pics if I find them.... they were amazing.

    So weird as I just mentioned you like an hr. ago...

    That pick up, I love... and was so excited to see you still own it. But then saw you sold... at least it is with someone cool whom lets you do more great work to it. Love it!

    Hope all is well with you and your fam! Mel

    Fabian's car has all the "RIGHT" proportions...and the color is as sweet as a root-beer float!


    Sweet!

    I know its a thread about the car, but must say that the reversed windsplit trick on the truck to run the exhaust is really neat.

    Fabian re-painted it before LSRU this year....always seeking perfection. Slightly different color.

    His Chev was the first bare metal car to turn up at a show, Paso 12 years ago. For the strictly custom guys following this who may not know, Fabian also runs and holds records on the salt with his roadster.
