Just picked my 50 this week! Want to drop it right away.
Any pics of it off the trailer?

I'm still waiting to see some 49-54 Hot Rods!!!!
I have rethought my whole vision on my '54 lately. This is what I am thinking now.....
-'54 Chevy 150 Post car
-'55 Chevy headlights and eyebrows
-Stock tail lights
-Lowered (a little more up front then out back)
-Dark Blue paint (with White Flames Watson styled maybe)
-Black Steelies with black walled Firestones Or Chrome Steelies with Pin walls
-Trim Rings and Spider caps if I go with Black wheels
-365 Cadillac with Weiand 2x4 intake with WCFB carbs
-'53 Olds rear (if it's the right width
-Super T-10 tranny
-Simple interior with two tones blue modeled after Cadillac interiors
-Welded hood with small peak
-Stock grille with stock teeth
Big Smokey Burnouts!

Mine is now sporting new color, wheels, and interior. I call it a Hot Rod....

Jamcoupe, bad ass. Are those buick taillights?

That is the only thing I would do to that car. Very nice.
Off the blocks and on the ground. Here's the first night out. There's still a few bugs to work out, but we're rollin'.
This one was the first custom that made me go, omg I need to own a classic car. does anyone know whose it is or which garage its from or anything at all?

Dude I love your ride. What are those rear wheel wells off of? I love the fact you didn't skirt the rear wheels and I love Kustoms with your skirts. Your just looks dead on right.
here is my car. i bought it at the begining of march.
all the way up
at the bottom with some better looking wheels on the front (at this point they are all on it now)
I love your car. What is the side trim off of?
This car getting pretty popular on this thread. I agree, nice. Do you have any more pics, different angles? How about a build thread or some statistics on this rod? How low is the chop etc.....
