    Buying a complete chassis from a local Hamb'er.Its 1950, its complete and really solid.The really great part is its already set up for a 302 V8,which is what we have for the car.The original chassis we'll keep, but its going to need sandblasting and rust repair in a number of places.We'll start on it after Jack's shoe box is ready and start on Frank's(he's four now):DWe also picked up a much better decklid and rear bumper.I'll post pics soon

    Wow. The only shoebox I had when I was 4 years old was the one my tennis shoes came in. I think we ought to nominate Javier for Dad of the Year.

    Its out from under a 1950 coupe.Its super solid and lowered all the way around.The back has been lowered with blocks and the front has been stepped up to lower it 4 to 5 inches.Clean it up and Por15 and were in business
