    Big improvement...

    But I feel it needs smoother hubcaps (from the late 40's early 50's) that will fit the smooth body lines better than the once you have on them now... but thats just my personal opinion.
    Also I would either raise the front a little or drop the rear so the stance will complement the wonderful chop, but since it has bags that would not be a problem.

    Go easy on the triping! Remember that when these cars where first customized (in the early 1950's) they had NO pinstriping at all... and looked so good!


    Still a very nice Olds Custom car. Glad to see it in good hands.

    To answer the question about who did the upolstery, ive used the same guy to do all my cars for years, he does nice work ar a good price, he is in delano calif, the most time he has ever taken to do a car for me is 10 days, if anyone needs upolstery done shoot me a pm and i can get you in touch with him.

    sexy as hell. the shine, and the white interior is a nice touch. im going to go ahead say that i think the engine was a good choice. i would want a reliable engine in that thing too so i cruise far and often.

    wow whata nice car u gots there
     
  25. Yep, it certainly is "cool enuf" in my book....we had a chopped 50 Olds sedanette here in the Omaha region some years back.....done a long time ago, maybe in the 70s. It was a yellow car with white interior and sat too high in the back. Wasn't nearly as nice a car as yours but I can't help but wonder if it could be that car with a bunch of improvements....great car!
