I vote no.
I like it.
I wouldn't. But I wouldn't be offended if you did.
Get er done! Just a little off the top.
Slice and dice
a chopped '36 CAN be an improvement BUT a severely chopped one can turn an already stunning car into a squashed piece of crap making it useless for anything but a hard core competition vehicle. Also.........if your not skilled in this type of modification you could turn it into an unuseable pile of scrap as this isn't a simple Model A type of deal. Bottom line...........this is a touchy one but leaving it alone is one way to win. I wouldn't chop but I sure would slam the suspension.
If I were you I would just enjoy drivin it fora while, then chop it.
If you had a really hot girlfriend, and you were satisfied with her looks, would you shave her head just to see if you liked the look more? Nah. You are lucky enough, leave it.
Chop it! (just do it right)
No mutha f#$king way,if you screw it up you will be in the shit.It is a damn killer ride as is..if it aint broke dont fix it.
Rat rod it.
I say a definite maybe or maybe not. It looks great the way it is, and SOME look great chopped. If you have the talent and tools, study the hell out of it and others before you start cutting or you may end up with one of those turret tops. If it was mine, I'd probably leave it alone, and I love chopped and chopping cars.
i love chopped cars, but i wouldn't chop this one if it were mine. ????
Negative on the chop. it looks damn good the way it is!
when you don't want to chop a roof it's time to change rest homes, cause they're fucking with you meds!!
'36 three window is on of the cars in least need of chopping - it's sex on wheels as it is.
That said even good sex can be spiced up - I say chop it (but do it right like they^ all said)
The answer to that question is always YES.
I say hammer it.
Oh hell no! Leave it alone...
I couldn't live with myself if I didn't cut the top.
All it needs is 2 inches wacked out of it!
Chop it but chop it right!Beautiful car.
no no no no no no
^^ I agree 100%! car looks bad ass the way it is.
Fuck yeah, weld some wrenches to it, add some skulls and Iron cross mirrors and your golden bro!
Or a tasteful chop..
Cut that fuker
That is one good looking car, and would still be a good looking car chopped. But!, to chop that and not have it end up looking like something that 'Rebel Rodz' would jizz all over is going to take some effort. I think some long in depth examination and study of the car Cole Foster build for Kirk Hammett is in order.
Those are beautiful cars either way. I think a nice small chop looks good on them but its a tough one to do. If you can do it I say do it. If you decide not to I say thats good too because the car looks great already.
