Didn't know if you wanted chrome or black, but since Moose did Chrome...
Nice touch leaving the...............rust.
"Nice touch leaving the...............rust."
Have at it.
I came across this bitchin' Cameo last month. I've seen one other of these '55-59 GM pickups with a '55/'56 Olds front bumper and I immediately thought it needed a slight section to even out the proportions, so I gave it a shot. I took an estimated 1.5" out through the beltline and about 2.5" below the headlights/taillights. It could probably use a chop, but I like it as is.
ohhh boyee.. THANK YOU ..Thats the idea.
very cool... needed some help on my fender too.. thanks bro
Can You do same but with these rim
oh very very cool... yes i actully have black steelies with chrome center cap an trim rings. This look is cool too.
fender repair is in its future....
OK, Madfish. I'm in.
Hey Wayne...The first hot rod I ever built way back in the day was a 39 Chev coupe. It had a straight axle and a Dodge Hemi with 4 Stromberg 97s...Brings back a lot of memories. Below are the original pics and here's my take on it moving ahead in time about 50 years
Anyone want to throw some panel paint on my truck. I'm thinking white or silver base with blue (and other complimenting colors) panels. Added a couple of photos for inspiration. Thanks!
Moose, I bet you wish you had the "39 back now!
I've always wanted to build one into a Rally Car. Something different and not another cookie cutter hot rod.
Like this one, Madfish? This a Fangio-style Chevy Coupe that won the Rally of the Incas in 2016.
Yes! And like these...
My first try on my new phone.
on the subject of roofs. 46-48 chevys are my favorite but I always thought they would look better with the shorter 1940 roof line. Can I see a 1940 roof on a 47 chevy, Thank you.
OK Madfish...Time to get off of that computer playing around with Photoshop and hop out into the shop to do some tin knockin!!!
Moose, nothing I would like better but being a college professor has tied me down now that the Virus is affecting us. But... one day!
Hope you're doing well. You are kicking ass on the Photoshop thread. Cheers and stay safe!
Thanks moose! Glad I got to see it. I imagined it for some time but it doesn't look as good as I thought it would. One more thing I would like to see before I give up on the idea of mashing these two cars together. Can I see the 1940 chevy body with the 1947 front hood and fenders? IDK if the running boards would be a problem but Thank you for your efforts.
The 40/47 roof swap is better looking than I would have thought, but the rear of the roof has too much hump in it for the later, streamlined fenders. I think if you kept the length dimensions but shaped the rear of the roof and rear quarter window more like the original '47 design you'd have a real winner.
Hey Moose.....I only have 1 photo of my old corvette and I carried it around in my wallet so many years it got damaged. Any way you can edit out the photo damage? TIA..Oh, and feel free to edit my grungy ass out of the photo....
always liked the truck, but just hate the satellite dish on the top.....lol i know, i know,
aaahh !!!! thank you !!!
when that truck was photographed, with the opening behind it, I wondered WHY the photographer did not move it down jus a little way one direction or other.,
I think the same mag, had article about " how to take pictures of cars"
I am so old I didn't even know what a satellite dish was at that time
