    Hello, From Muskegon!
    So I'll be seeing this on the streets come May right? Burn Center Show at Fifth Third?
    Pics would help. Is it drivable or barn fresh? Plans or a vision?

    Nothin but Mighiganders. (and one outlaw from Ohio:p)

    Set yourself to sponge mode, tons of great info on here.
  18. May is a bit sooner than i planned, hopefully around middle of summer or so. Just going to do all my research this winter and gather all the parts till its warm enough to work in the old barn (love michigan weather:rolleyes:) I already have the 55 desoto grille but thats as far as i've made it, lol. Plan on full air with Gambino's tail dragger kit, SBC w hopefully a T5 behind that, wide white on the factory rims and just shave a french some things to clean it up. Wish me luck! :) here is a few pics of her

    Kustombuilder is the expert around these parts when it comes to
    air set-ups. He's north of Hastings somewhere. He's got crafter kits for really cheap. And he's a wealth of knowledge. Looks great, long way to go. Good luck!:cool:
