thanks, great job.
the tires appear to be the same size. what about a rubber rake? 7.50x16 on the rear and 6:00x16 for the front.
one last thing, ditch the lakes header. it's too dark to notice but my plans are for a dual quad Y block with rams horn exhaust manifolds with under car exhaust exiting between the door and rear wheel.
damn, you guys do nice work. i love this thread. thanks madfish and all who contribute to this thread.
now i can print this and show the guys at breaakfast tomorrow what's in my head.
Oh, baby, now you’re talking! I just got this little rocket, and it was red, but got a rattle can black paint job that’s horrible! Lotta chrome and the wheels are getting switched out- old engine parts, and 5 window aluminum wheels should make it more to my liking. Thanks Moose! As always, you inspire me to forge on!

stop it. there's enough things going on in my head as it is. you know, i've been invited to check out a 26-27 roadster body. same place my coupe body came from back in the early 70's.
Thanks again, Moose.....
Looking for a bit of photoshop help. Skirts, Maybe some good wheel covers (maybe 57 caddy) ,and the front a bit lower.

Heres a random assignment for our Photoshop gurus.
I was thinking about custom taillights and wondered why I had never seen '56 Chevy taillight units used in other cars. I think they might be especially attractive if they were flipped 180°. If you have some time on your hands, choose a rear 3/4 view of any '50s car and let's see how they might look.
And if there are any existing customs with '56 Chevy taillights (right-side-up or not) I wouldn't mind seeing them.
It could work....
You all do some pretty cool stuff on here!
Im interested in adding a turtle deck either a 1923 style or 1927 taller style and trying to figure out if I will have to change the wheelbase to mage it look right. Could you add these tails without changing the wheelbase? You can ditch the gas tank to add the tails. Also I will be changing the front suspension around do the car should be closer to level.
I had nothing to do, so I did it.
Cool. But instead of sinking them in, I wonder what it could look like if it was stood up at an angle with a fin cap fabricated for the top, like one of these. Except the lean would be reversed.
Same car but a bit more custom....
Thanks to both of you! I'd love for someone to try it.
^^^^This looks really cool and brought back memories of an old photoshop, '55 Chevy taillights in a '49 Poncho. Amazing what flaring them old rounded fenders can do for a car.
how do you open the doors?
The last header unscrews 3/4 of the way down. Car has a 1/4 mile warranty and comes equipped with asbestos gloves.
Can I please get a pic of my car with a nice background.
Something fall looking, old barn, old gas station, what ever you choose...
One more for ya......
Could I get matching torq thrusts on the rear and some red window tint? The wheels will be 15" just like the front so cut and paste is fine! If youre feeling froggy maybe a little radius on the rear wheel wells. Awesome work and thread! Thanks guys
