Thank you so much, great skill.
Aaaaand here it is in two-tone.
And here it is as a cleaned up full custom cruiser...As I've said before paint and trim can totally change the vibe and character of a car.
hey Moose Are you up for this ? If not never mind,,,,,,here goes: lower front fender over WW , down to top of hubcap, by cutting a "V" from bottom of fender ( behind front tire), up to windshield then lower fenders and hood , so it "looks good" instead of going uphill from windshield forward. If you want to do this,, IF NOT no problem, Its a classic, I personally never liked it from W.S. forward.
BTJM (but thats just me)
How's this look to you??
So much better, but still to much whitewall showing, and FENDER is sooo thick, DOES NOT seem low enuff in front. thank you for ALL YOU DO
OK here it is with a sectioned fender...
Nice looking car...I wouldn't change anything...
I sure do like this better....
what a difference !!! your skill baffles me, thank you !!!
Could one of you gents letter metal melt down on the side of this car please and thank you
Dude, I do not like it lowered. wow, that is seriously a 1st for me not liking something lowered. I think I would have to bag it and lay it out or leave it stock. thanks for the Photoshop.
Nailed it! Perfect!!
Is it possible to blow up the GS to scale, and outfit it with the dual superchargers, zoomies, and dual slicks from the Kookie T make-over?
Man! I like this!
Not too sure about this
Moose, You are just TOO good!!! (AND fast!)
I guess you know the back story on those two cars?
I am aware of them but not too well versed in their full history.
I I saw a Phantom today
It's hard to put in a few words, but this thread might help explain.
(Just a preface...both cars were owned by Jim Street, and that over the top roadster was once Grabowski's famous "Kookie T".)
>> hard to believe its the car I lOVED as a kid....
How much do I hate it? Let me count thee ways...
Did Norm sell it to Jim Street, anybody know how much?.
Great Pic!! Last of the "manly" Fighters.

You should see them with the leading edge of the wings with green stains on them. Marine close air support.
@madfish OK Wayne...Decided to keep it clean an simple. I think I want one
How about an early Chevy "Bait"??
I worked on Phantoms in the Navy... have a serious love affair with the damned thing.

I'm thinking green, light green, dark green, in between green, other than green, to match tan????? ideas?? thanks ahead of time for your effort.....
Tan interior works well with a lot of different colors like white, black, dark blue or brown, to mention a few.
