    I loved the alter image monte carlo when it first came out. hate the tilt front end.. but with it sitting down with the convert look, it rocked. (I think it was the first version with the top off that I liked best (seen it a few times at shows when I lived in the bay area.

    Here was my 69 Lincoln had Daytons on it but after we got done with the suspension the car would be on the frame and the wheels would be in the air..had to go 20/22's just to get it to sit right.

    Must agree w/ Miguel.
    But i also have a doubt. Layin' being the main thing here
    i think that maybe the car wasnt lifted nor bagged, so thats why
    he had to put bigger wheels in......if it was it wouldnt make any sense would it?
    Sill aint right for here!

    Hey T dude! Did you get this from Mike? I drooled all over this car thinkin just how much i would love to make it look like Skidmark's!
    Keep the wheels bro, w/ a buff they will kill it!

    Groucho, i dont know if you posted that already but i didnt! :D
    Skidmarks Olds is on page 5 i believe i think its incredibly well done, and
    has a violent Lee Pratts 58 vibe to it!
    Javier cars are also hard!

    Cant really leave this one out after the Olds.....im just sorry i dont have a decent pic w/ hood e trunk shut!
    And w/out the creepy "figure" in the back seats :D

    on a side note, im uploadin on a fotki page a ton of old lowrider pics, its takin me ages cause i dont have a connection home and im doin it during the spare time at work.
    Theres goin to be a lot of stuff, all divided by make or wathever, like GM cars/FoMoCo.....or Cruisin pics/draggin.....and so on, so its gonna be easy to look for what you wannna see.
    Anyways, if you have old scans please lemme know about'em, even better if you have old pics yet to be scanned! :D

    Yeah, got it from Mike....I wanted this car since last august when he first put it up here for sale! Finally sold my 51 Belair and drove all the way to freekin Mich. in the snow to pick it up! I love it! But the wheels are gonna go.....I never liked them, even back in the day....besides, they are too far gone to just buff up...and the tires are dry rotted. Im gonna go with chrome reverse and baby moons w/thin whitewalls.

    Here it is at Mike's......

    Yeah man, that thing would look killer with Supremes on it!! Maybe ask one of the talented guys in the Photoshop thread to put some on that side profile pic to see how it looks!!

    And how SWEET is this Olds? Man i love it!!

    Guys, im sorry if this is a bit of a shitty image but im sooo excited i have to share this!:cool:
    I asked on the photochop thread to alter one of the pictures of my Ford w/ the cragars im goin to use and the color im thinkin of shoting right now.
    There will be more to it, a few body mods that are too tricky to be photoshopped and the interior that will be white tuck n roll as the early style lows....also the roof might be laced and other details....
    anyway, im very excited as it looks a lot like my vision of the thing and im even more convinced this car is perfect for the style...at least over here! :D
    What do you guys think? [​IMG]
     
  25. Have you thought about using pearl white on the body? I am huge fan of green, but I think the pearl white or maybe a deeper green would look better. I applaud you for working with what you have, I think it is going to look good.

    ^^^^ Wow, thats sum serious shit right there! ^^^^^
    Paint looks sick!
     
  28. Fuck! I just bought a Model A 3 blocks from your shop yesterday. I should've stopped by to look at your projects. That thing looks KILLER. Those wheels are prolly Cragars, but they look like the old Dynastys or Shelbys in that one pic

    Oh btw Groucho i never said thank you for the line on the Starlite posters.
    They sent'em to me and never wanted anything in return! At least this is what looked like as they never replied when i asked what email address should i use to pay them.Great guys whichever way you look at it.

    As for the wheels spokes look a little "flatter" than usual super spokes so you might be right, then again im no expert so my observation aint worth shit! :D

    To keep it on point heres a few pics of Rumblers Italy Romano Chevy 3100
    that at the moment is gettin painted by this guy:http://customdesign-roby.blogspot.com/

    Check it out! The guy's talent is unbelievable! 1st show that i will attend w/ the car painted i'll ask him to do some scroll type stripes,and if i'll ever have enuff cash for such a job i'll also have the roof done by him.

    Man what a great car. The hours of patience and dedication that you guys put into that machine really show through, and speak clearly of your commitment to excellent work and craftsmanship. Now I have to try to go do tile work today and all I can think of is that roof!

    Five stars to you :D
