just bought this and was looking for suggestions on some mild scallops............thanks
Anyone care to try some of their photo shopping talent on my gauge faces?
I like black and orange, but feel free to try anything that you think will look good.
If I can choose something, I'd like to take them somewhere and have some decals printed out and stick them onto them. Thanks!!!
Could someone change the colour of my 54 to these two different greens? That would be wicked.
Just messing, it's a genuine 28k miles with full documented history, so the only things I will be doing will be very mild (visor, skirts,etc)
Now that's an idea, got us thinking........any more please guys?
One from a couple of years back.These are cool little cars. Another one that nobody has yet really done justice too as a custom. You´re lucky to find one of those in such good shape. Aussie import?
No, English through and through I've got it to take the place of the 38 for next years runs, as I'm spending next year doing body and paint (if I can come up with a colour I like). trouble is the daughter has claimed it for her first car so it looks like I will have to hang onto it when the rods done. (looks like I won't be getting onto building that Somerset anytime soon)
Must admit I do like your pic of the 57 that's how Vauxhall should have shaped them
Nice score. Not that you really need to go nuts on these. Just lowered and cleaned up they look great.
Found this though, which isn´t half bad....
yeah seen that In some ways I wish it was a bit rougher it would give me an excuse then.
OK here's orange and black right...Not sure what combo you have in mind...Pretty bright!!!
Deep sigh of relief.

James D's version hits the mark. About the only way to pull the front and rear boxes into proportion with the top is to make it a 2-door coupe. As Bill Mitchell is supposed to have said,
"Styling a small car is like trying to tailor a dwarf!"
Peanut 1959's comment on my chopped version gave me a chuckle:
"It's like a '50 Dodge and a '52 Ford had a baby" It's true!
Anyway I had a go at the front.
would someone like to lift the falcon a little over stock, with the front a bit higher? Just thinking of ways to do the falcon.

Wow, that really helps to make up my mind. Thank you.
Now to find the colour code for the paint.
awesome, thank you... I was not sure about the port holes...they are growing on me...maybe I will put red inside them also.....then again getting rid of them would prob be better but more work lol thanks again
pipes a for sure going bye bye ..............thanks
Here it is with no pipes and both red and no ports....
Looking for a couple of quick wheel and tire changes on my roadster trying to decide if I should pick up some chrome 16" steelies and blackwalls for some variety. Thanks in advance!
Bass's coupe is attached for the wheels and tires.
