  1. @SuperFleye sure, use any of the pics you need. Glad there is one or two you feel are suitable. I have a few more that I snapped of Gene working on the car. And a couple more of the car being worked on. Shoot me a PM if you want to see those as well.

  3. I like these old customs. I wish they could all be saved.

    Was it a '50 or a '51?
    It has '51 bumpers and parking lights.
    Also a Canuck '51 Meteor grille.
    Any pictures of the dash?
    OK, cancel this. I just noticed a picture of the dash.
    It's a '50.

    I wonder is the intent to complete this version of it or are they intending to restore it to the original? Even though I am not really a fan of this version, I would like to see Bills work saved. The original design has been preserved in the clone and was built by Bill himself thus making it a Bill Hinze original in itself. To change this one back would require replacing everything Bill did with someone else's work . So it would not be a Hinze original. Kind of like Norms Kookie car. Von Franco and others have built so many clones of it, that now the restored original looks just like another clone. just my two cents. Larry
