    I wouldn't say its chopped or bagged, cause it's not. But here's my '57 mild custom. Shaved deck, removed some trim, lowered 3 inches all around, 55 wheel covers.... Nothing major, but looks exactly how i wanted it. Check out my build thread or profile for more photos.

    Pontiacs are so underrated and under used as customs in this hobby.The 55,57,50 can be such killer customs. I owned a 55 starchief with the indian lucite hood ornament that lit up when the lights went on.. That in itself was the best thing about cruising that ride

    Here's my '56:

    She's still a long term work in progress....needs lots of bodywork before real paint and interior and all sorts of other things.
    Anyhow, I'd love to see some VINTAGE pics of custom Pontiacs! I always look for them in old mags and even search the backgrounds. Rarely do I see any Pontiacs, let alone customs!
     

  8. boy this would be a bitchin car if it was painted!

    Get yourself a copy of the Jan '58 Rod & Custom. One of the best looking '55 Cheiftains I've ever seen, would love to know if the car still exists.

    Nothing too special...Lowered it 3 in the back and 2 in the front...added a couple teeth to the grill and did some interior work...still running the old flat 6 with a three speed...get's quite a few looks. Was thinking of choppin and baggin her, but she's too nice for now.

  16. Nothing looks better than a Pontiac Streamliner. Especially with a well executed chop.

    Here's a few tired old picture of mine. Since this was taken (6 years ago) it's gone through a few changes including 4" drop in the rear and 6 1/2" in the front. Not 50's but close 48.

    I agree that these cars have been overlooked. Most all I have seen have been good solid cars to work with. I had a 47 fastback but had to sell it in order to finance this one.
