    First picture is from the first week I bought her...(I had already shaved the handles... notice it was a 4 door then...)

    The last two are as she she sits today (well kinda, she has more done)

    silveradoman4,
    thanks , I bought my ride about 19 months ago from Member Slide, it is a fun car to drive
    I am to old and brittle to do much work on them anymore but I do enjoy being around old cars/trucks

    Great thread. I love all the Chevies through these years.

    I know these aren't great photos, but the first two are shots of my first-ever car. These were taken in Springfield, Mo sometime around '67. Sold this rust-free beauty for $300!

    The second pair is a car I first saw at the HAMB drags (#3 maybe) when it was up for sale - then again the next year. Talked to the new owner. I believe he paid something like $12K for the car. Definately well worth it! This is what I would have hoped for my car to evolve into had I kept it. I love everything about this ride - including the inline six that's still in it.

    Dude, that is amazing. I can see the doors, but can't even figure out what other parts you've used. That car deserves a "how I did it" tech thread of its own.
    What did you use for the frame? Any Chevy parts, or all from scratch? Any in progress photos?

    The chevies you guys are showing are cool as hell.I'm an old fart, and have had quite a few 49-52s.I think they are one of the coolest platforms for mild customs ever.

    BDiamond, you may want to do some clearancing around those rub marks on your bags before you hear the big KABOOM.

    Hey BDiamond, what bags did you use just specific height and width? Do you run a compressor?
