Flames this time????
Isn't this an old build? There's so many projects that come from his shop it's hard to keep track. .
Nope this is a current build. Your problably thinking of the shiny black '34 from a number of years ago.
Not much of an update, but I got a bunch of nick-knacks painted shiny black including the dash. Here is a quick rewind;
Still waiting on pistons, next update might be a while...
About time! Get to gettin, dude...

The pistons are backordered for another month, so I have to move forward.
Mockup motor back in.
DON'T try this at home.....
Body mounted for the final time.
Now, I can finish putting the car together and stuff the new engine in once the pistons show up.
See ya, -Abone.
looks pissed off
Edit Right side
Look great. Love the wheel choice.
So, let me ask a small question. With the gauges in the middle of the dash, whatcha gona do about the cowl vent handle/linkage? I was so pissed off when I went to mount my cowl vent linkage! My pretty gauges were right in the way! When I want it open I just grab it and pull it up and off..store it behind the seat.
I bent the handle forward a bit now it clears by about an inch or so. I learned that lesson the hard way on the first '34 I built.
See you in August, -Abone.
My guy got the seat done. The insert is '57 Chevvie material. Not sure how he sneaked Chevvie stuff in there without me noticing...
Belts mounted to the roll bar.

Looks great,,,,,should be comfortable to drive around in .
Now,,,,I know it’s a Pontiac mill,,,,,,but is it still gonna be supercharged ?
I can’t remember,,,sorry .
Yes, the car will have a 6-71. That is why I am still waiting on custom pistons. Hard to believe no one stocks a reverse dome supercharger piston with a revised pin location and thick top ring land for a 389 Pontiac.....
Did you leave the flange that runs across the back of the body down low? I think the original tank cover bolts to it. Are you planning to run an original style 33-34 gas tank? I cut that thing off my car and installed a stainless tank below the back window. Its' the front of my trunk now.
Just checking in. Bad ass.
Is it done yet??
No one runs supercharged Pontiacs...
The chrome showed up while I was at the Drags. Chromeplaterjosh for the win.
This is the most economical street level chrome they offer, but it still looks fantastic.
Dang! Looks good.
looks like they’ve been reproducing while you were on the road!
Wow, that's nice! I sent him a pm for some of my stuff.
Wow, I just went through this whole thread. Really nice job.
