  8. ^ That looks like an earlier custom that someone 'updated.'

    Roger O'Dell sent me a message, he talked to the Owner of the wagon, Richie at Unique twist body shop. He said they were slide outs. Thanks Roger for the info.

    The Flyin Hawaiian.
    Sad story behind this car. JGDesign and Fab spent years building this car. They did a mad dash to finish it to debut it Saturday at the Ventura Nationals this year. Unfortunately Justin got a call the day before the show that the owner passed away. If you have Instagram you can hear about it at @JGDesign_Fab account.

    Your friend's shoebox sedan looks like it drove right off the little pages onto the HAMB

  22. This '59 Impala reminds me of James Kudla's '60 Impala known as "Exotica" built back in the late 70s or early 80s. We covered "Exotica" over on the W.E.H.T. thread back in 2017. It was W.E.H.T. #84. Here's a link to make some comparisons.

    Hard to believe someone cut up a '59 Impala. Nice to see people thinking outside the box doing some radical stuff to "rare and expensive" cars nowadays. I see the car has a "Dukes" plaque on it. See, not all lowriders are G bodies with mile high hydraulics and a 25 color 15 thousand dollar kandy paint job. This '59 is custom all the way! E

  27. No. They were more square. These are 56/57 Chevy.
     
  28. Oh yeah, I know. I was just talking about both cars from a custom styling standpoint. E
