    this thread truly illustrates where the imagination and work can take you. lots of very tasty 'boxes. the one in my avatar was my first--put it together under a tree from two junkers and a few readily available (and cheap) n.o.s. parts from joblot automotive back in '75. lots of kids back then called me "jed clampett" when they'd see me driving around. its end came when an old biddy rear-ended me at a stoplight. her first remark to me was, "thank god it was an old car!"

    So has this thread gone bust? Is there a newer one?

    Is that chopped, or did you just replace the roof with a new one?

    Here's my '50 Coupe sporting a recent change of hubcaps. Pretty much stock except for the '51 taillights and chrome spears, and a complete right hand drive '51 dash, steering column and steering wheel. Saving up the pennies to lower it a couple of inches.

  17. Out of pure curiousity what years did the shoebox term cover?

    I am curious because I haven't found a definite answer as of yet.

    My favorite is a 49-50 business coupe
     
  20. Thanks for the reply, just wanted to be sure as I have a '56 and I didn't want to stand around and not correct someone if they tried to call mine one. One thing I found out in the auto hobby is it can be brutal to those arm chair hobbists that talk like they know what they are talking about when they don't.
