Good looking car, and I love the Grill!
It does look like the rear needs shortened a wee bit or maybe some of the trunk hump taken out???
subscribe. Cant wait to see more progress. great job!
looks great. metal work is fantastic. keep us updated
Very well proportioned, Your skills and eye a both most impressive.
Not sure about the grille, don't hate it but a little trendy for my tastes.
I vote for a dark metalic, since others have weighed in on color.
However it's finished I predict it will get a lot of attention.
I like it!
And I really like the wheel/tire combination and stance. Just because it's chopped, sectioned and shortened doesn't mean it has to be a taildragger.
Like DRD57, I'm not too hip on the cam grille bar either... but it doesn't kill the rest of the car, so if you like it, I'd say keep it. Nice work so far!
Nice work and welcome to the HAMB!
so beautiful and different! the metal work is top notch!!
WOW. That is vision.
Vision is right. Beautiful.
And I like the grill. Caught my eye right away, made me look twice to see if it was real.
that is one killer lookin car you have there johnny. are you riding on a static drop or do you plan on getting bags on that puppy?
What a great Car, It would look great RAW!!!
How long did this take? Hours????
I love what you have done to the body....but customs are supposed to be lower in the back than the front...other than that I'd say that you've nailed it!
That is fucking RAD!!! Absolutely love it dude, is there any way we can get some progress pics?
Real nice car. do you have an build pictures?
Bitchin' Johnny, through and through!
I know everyone has their opinions but you've obviously made it this far without us opinionated people, so who cares what we think? Shorten it more? Lower in the back? No bigs n' littles? Bullshit.
I say you've built this car to this point which is WAAAAAY beyond what most of us here are capable of, and only just a few very select people here could pull off that much work so cleanly. Don't let anyone deter your vision, stay on track!
you could put some 56 olds headlights be kinda like the old grapevine. randy rhoades who built the clone used a 52 chev and cut the top of the front fenders and put 56 olds on there....pretty cool either way!
johnny, very nice work! I vote for gold when you paint it
That thing is tuff as nails!!!
Nice work, I like the cam but that trunk kills the car !
Outstanding! And for paint...
I LIKE GOLD!!!!!!!
That pretty well sums it up..... nice work
Bitchin! Dig the rake, not so much the grill.
That's a really nice custom car!!
I dig it.
Any chance of posting a photo with another car or a person to get the full effect of the body mods?
If it's a gal with great legs, that would just be a bonus.
I would have to agree that the back end looks kind of long now but I tend to find that is the case with alot of sectioned cars. As long as you are happy that's all that matters.
Some build shots would be great or some of your other builds if the are relevant to this board.
