    I don't think I would do anything but drive it. Beautiful car that should remain that way IMHO.

    too nice to chop, find another one thats cheap and cut it. as true car guys, i believe we owe a little to history to leave the nice ones close to original, there are plenty of canidates for a crue cut, i just traded off a model a sedan that was too clean also, the guy who got it thanked me for not cuttin it. just my thoughts

    Chop it! Them fleetlines look killer chopped. Masterson Kustoms can help you with the chop. He's even chopped 4 door fleetlines. You can get it color matched when all done and continue to sport that clean look. Why start all over with a piece of junk. It gets really expensive. Just saying...
     
  25. For the first 50 years I loved cars, a Chopped top was absolutely unique and pretty rare....That's what made a chopped car exciting. Now, that seems to be the default for builders. Why nor try something new and rae and exciting....leave it alone....:) It's a great car as it stands. Then again...you could make it different like everybody elses.....

    NO WAY! Way too nice...everyone is chopping everything now days. I think it would be a later regret.

    How tall are you?


    But seriously, what's cooler than a chopped "fastback"?
