    Normally I would have to say that I like the '66-'67 Chevy II body style a little better but, when they are set up as a gasser the earlier body style looks like the designers at Chevrolet knew that's how they were supposed to be. Man, I love the way your car is turning out. Clean and simple.

    Thank you all for the kind words. I used a 48" cause with the skinny's and no backspacing on the front wheels it gives it the right look,
