    Is that right? An upside down 50 Plym window on the Ness car? Doesn't look like it to me, but I could totally be wrong. The rear window area on these cars are often awkward when chopped, his car looks great. What is the grillshell made of? Really compliments the car a lot.

    Only on the HAMB could looking at a kustom become a bunch of ladies fighting.

    Since this thread already wandered a bit off-topic I'll add this little story about Cole's chopped '54:
    I had just finished the chop on my '53 Chevy and my wife and I went to California for a vacation and I managed to go to Paso Robles (maybe 5 or 6 years ago). Until then I had never actually seen a chopped '49-54 Chevy in person, and only knew it was even possible because of old photos of the Moonglow. Then I got there and there must have been a dozen or two or them. Most of the chops didn't look as good as mine (to me anyway), except for this dark blue hardtop sitting in front of some restaurant. That was Cole's car.

    Anyway, of all the cars there Cole's was the one that hit me in the gut. I went back at least 8 times over the course of a couple hours hoping to run into the owner.
    Here's how naive I really was: I just assumed that it was home-built. I thought all kustoms were built in 2-car garages like mine! I would have absolutely sh*t if I'd met him and started asking all my questions and then realized he was an actual honest-to-God professional.
    A year or two later I started seeing photos of the car all over the place and I felt like a total hick. I thought I was trying to meet a schmo like me, and only later realized I was actually stalking a celebrity.
    I wish I had run into him, though, because I would have probably learned that you have to notch the frame to get the ass that low. It never even occurred to me while building mine, and now I must bear the shame of not being able to scrape my rear bumper.
     
  6. Profile pics of this car are elusive...I checked all of my pics, both the new Salinas Boys book (which rules BTW), and the section in Hot Rod Kings...all of which to no avail. I also don't recall even seeing pics of the car from any angle other than what we've seen from Cole's shop and the Garage shoot.

    Attached is a shot of a HAMBer owned '54 that from what I've read, was also cut by Cole.

    Looking forward to seeing what you come up with, Janne...we already know from your renderings that you have a great eye for customs.

  7. HAhaha you dork I was serious, that'd be cool to hang with him. And uh I'll hit up some puberty as soon as you cram a hefty amount of tampons up your over-emotional message board vag. Awesome '54 though.

    These cars are the shit CF is solely responsible for putting these chevys in my consciousness I never really liked em till I saw his and the ness car.... seriously! As for payin for work theres stuff some of us just cant do and some times its cheaper to pay someone that rocks to do something then to buy the tools it takes just to attempt the job! Mad respect to those that do but without guys like Ness (who is a master craftsman have you seen his bikes!?) and others who can afford to pay guys like CF to create think of the cool stuff we would be missing out on if they didnt! And hey Cole hope to hear back on the grill spacer for my galaxie I saw a pic of the now Edelbrock owned 66 galaxie nascar and it has exactly what i was trying to draw for you.
     
  11. I wonder if he still hangs with Monk from "Another State of Mind", that fucker would help him work on his shit.

  30. Right from the horses mouth you guys can't say anything now. Also because of guys like Mike Ness guys like Cole have a job, and these guys are keeping what we all love alive and still moving forward.
