    it snowed almost 2 feet of snow outside here in Reno, NV. Reno never ceases to amaze me with the weather, 2 days ago it was almost 60 degrees outside when I left then when I went to pick up my car from getting chopped, I came home to snow snow snow. Couldnt hardly make it up the driveway! How do you all like the new chop?

    That chop IS spot on. I agree that there is no other way it should be done. Of course if I wasn't so vertically challenged I wouldn't be saying that either!

    thanks! yes its actually a 6 1/2" chop in the front and 6" in the rear, wanted to get them most out of a non channeled car. Halibrand V/8 quickchange is next with a model t spring to drop the ass end down a few more inches. Probably going to remove the gas tank and notch the rear frame horns to butt up close to the body so it has a real clean look in the rear.

    Sick, man! I love 33/34's with the A pillers slanted back like that. I'm a proponent of "the more the chop the better!"

    ohh and btw no snow anywhere else but in the reno area. Reno got 2 feet, the stateline and mountain areas only got around 7-10". So strange for this time of year.

    what do people think about the front tires? Do they look too little and I should get 500x16's? They tires are 4.50's right now.

    Chop looks good!
    I like 6.00x16's personally on the front....

    bigger front tires, proportionately will make the body look smaller and the chop look more extreme when viewing the car from the front....

    Mean looking car! I would go a size up on the front tire, does look a little small but that is just my opinion.
