    well folks this is my new project. ive had it for awhile been working on it for a few months when i can. doing a 2x3 frame, sbc 350, channeled 3 inches, its gonna have a bit of a rake to it with a suicide front end. this is gonna be my first build where i dont have to rely on someone else to do the work due to not having the tools or the place to do it. i helped build two of my previous cars. and now its my turn to be in charge. i have been thinking about this car for the past 2 years and now its time!! i know the name sounds kind of corny but it makes sense to me. old school + new school = MIDDLE school! will post progress as i get it. And a big thanks to my good buddy Cody (patches) for all of his time and help.

    dont take this the wrong way,,your original pic you posted looks spot on,,,( i admit i didnt read your original post though) please dont put a goofy suicide front end under it (just my own personal opinion) looks killer with the blackwalls and wide fives...
