    so I just saw a video of the monster garage episode of the '54 chevy they did with all the "famous" builders. I never saw the show and just now found a quick video of it finished on youtube...I did a search but found no info on this car

    so I'm wondering if anyone has any pics?
    where's the car now?
    how much did they section, chop, channel?
    what type of '54 chevy did they start out with?
    any build details would be appreciated

    planning for a future project and liked that car a lot

    54 chevy 210(i think), sectioned 4 inches, chopped 4 in the front and maybe 5 in the back, Jesse still has it and there are a few pics of it on 50chevy.com

    If memory serves me correctly they cut it down a total of 12 inches. Jessie still has the car and it was a 210 post they started with.

    That was the best car show I ever saw. Man what a shop full of talent.
    P.S. Wasn't that the episode when Norm Grabowski had to go to the emergency room ?

    this car made me a fan of sectioning. most of the sectioning stuff i had seen before was on "goofy" east coast style cars. this cemented for me that sectioning does have a place in the kustom world.

    It must have been quite a build to have all those names and builders helping out. talk about a whos who of fabricators.

    If they could make a show like that without all the b.s. drama I would love it. I seem to remember Jesse mentioning something like doing a "Norm Abrams" type of fab show. That would be awesome but I realize it would be a pretty small fan base. Oh well, a guy can dream...

    are you sure? it was at Starbirds earlier this year with a full display behind it, was it out on loan?

    Great episode, but my favorite was the Model A sedan build. Except I wanted to kill the idiot faking the heart attack.
     
  18. Jesse still has it. The de rosa's did all the body work and whatnot, they live a town away from me. =]

    I'd watch that. It would be interesting and educational to spend an hour long show just showing the world what one machine can do.
