    Well done, thats a beautiful car. Nicest ive seen in a long time! What have you done in the way of suspension and how does it drive? Im grafting away at my 50 at the moment. Would love to see some build pics if you have any.

    hey kiwiandy, the box has jamco front n rear disc brake conversion kit, shorter springs, rides pretty decent no complaints.

  4. You Sir have great taste !!

    If I ever move back to So-Cal, I know who I'm calling for some welding...That is one of the best shoeboxes I've ever seen, anytime, anywhere. Elegant, simply quite elegant.

  12. Love shoeboxes and yours is a very clean rendition,I like it very much,simple,tasteful and to the point,very cool.
     
  13. Yes, the house is just as cool as the car. If you like hairpin leg furniture, Heywood Wakefield pieces and appliances straight from the 50's then yeah, it is just as cool.


    Ray, I am not surprised that car looks as good as it does. My only regret is that Im not there to cruise in it with you.
