Thank You Peanut! It was an Intense amount of work to get it where it is today, As with any project it involved lots of thought. dedication and support from friends and family!
Got the new Chevy I bought at the CCR home last weekend. It drives like a dream. Myron and Pam have put about 100K miles on it in the last 17 years and it still looks fantastic....hoping to put on another 100K myself. It and the Merc look pretty happy together....a Grapevine tribute and a future Hirohata tribute....it's a match made in heaven.
Naturally I have driven it to work everyday this week....the staff says we should expect a wreck out front any day with the people taking pics as they drive by. Lol
Anyone here know how much Jack Nethercutts 1952 Oldsmobile was chopped? Beautiful car
From Customs Illustrated Sept. 1960 (via the Kustomrama site) it was chopped 4 inches.
That looks like a really heavy chop to be 4 inches. Maybe BC it's a hardtop
I thought the same thing, sure looks to be more.
Remember it was a hardtop and they came from the factory with a lower roof than a sedan. A 4 inch chop on one is a healthy cut.
Power Hot Rod Reunion in Strängnäs, Sweden.
Love the roof scopes on the 58 ford, Wander what there off of?
Had dinner with Kurt Saturday and he told me you picked up a new ride. You might not remember me, but we met at Branson. I looked for you at Indy, to say Hello. I was traveling thru. Congrats on the new ride.
Hey Tony!! How are you? Man, I'm bummed I missed you at Indy...I was no doubt wandering around aimlessly taking pictures. LOL Kurt is correct, got a new set of wheels. I bought the lavender Grapevine styled Chevy that was at the Indy show. Have had it home a week now and been driving the wheels off it. I plan on bringing it to the Branson show in a few weeks. Will you get to come down this year? Did I see you have your Merc up for sale?
