  5. Beautiful 36! East Bay does great work!
  6. Yep, that is the picture of how to build a 36 3 window at least in my mind!

    Top notch work and really good guys.
  9. The beautiful, unchopped, 3 window in the video is Brandon's. A perfect example of his style and restraint. We took the same approach on my old '36, but I did talk him into cutting this one...

    Obviously the car was a collaboration, but the sectioned Olds bumpers and '41 dash were his ideas. I had a '38 Zephyr dash and steering wheel for the car, but as the build evolved, he convinced me they were too much for this car. He was right. In my opinion, the chop is one of the best of all time. We took cues from the best early '36s....the Calori and the Pierson. And like those, it wasn't cut at the beltline.

    Some people didn't get the car and said the we should have considered whitewalls. Like that thought hadn't crossed our minds....haha. Besides us, the guys who really got it are the ones we look up to. And we both agree, Grandpa would have loved it.

    That's a shame that they stole the Black Angels' song "Black Grease" to promote their business, but didn't even give the band credit for the music in their "music video". But cool car.

    Here's the band's actual music video. Credit where credit is due.

  13. Bryan,

    Thanks for chiming in!

    I knew the '36 in the video (shot in 2017) was Brandon's ... but didn't want to call Jay out on his own Blog :eek: ... plus these two sentences:
    ... made it sound as if Jay actually intended to include photo(s) of your bitchin' 3wd in his Blog ... but those image(s) somehow didn't get "published" ... but rather only the YouTube video (featuring Flaner's bitchin' 3wd) was included in the Blog posting.​

    I’ve spent hours looking at the details of the cars they’re building. Engine bays, interiors. They catch all the details...really like the stuff they’re turning out. Cool video too, even if they are music thieves. (Joking.)

  17. Wow! That car is beautiful! Breath-taking really. I just gained a whole new appreciation for Hollywood Flippers. Guess I never noticed how cool they look in motion.:).....Don.
