Sorry to hear that Doc. You're a tad far out... but if you can block bodywork in preparation for black paint, let's talk.
All I have is the photo I took the day after I got it home. The car looks a little different now, but it's on its way to looking like the Photoshop below. I don't plan to have it done in '09, but it will be done eventually - and done right. I'm building a Hemi for it right now.
Here's some pics of my HEMI project in a '31 Chevy 5 window coupe...
