    My project is getting closer. It started life with the vision of a total custom but was never finished. I got the 1/2 completed project when I was in high school and really wanted it to be more of a hot rod. Got it on the road and was driving it in high school (1st pic). Wrecked it, and started over. Half way through the rebuild I really got the bug for the custom look. So, here I am. It's kind of a hodge-podge of ideas that had no real vision throughout the build, but is turning out OK. I'm going to drive it without the hood for awhile while I get all the bugs worked out.

    As it was in high school:

    My friends grandma took that pic. She loved the fact a high schooler was driving an old car. His mom and grandpa are in the background. I have no idea why she was using black and white film, but I'm glad she was! That was taken in 1993, but looks like the 1950s!
