    If that thing ever sees glass and glossy paint the world of custom cars is in for a real treat. Wicked ain't wicked enough.

    I do not want to take credit for chop since I didnt do it. My good friends Kyle Newman and Steve Pierce did the chop. Gotta give credit to them. I really intended on keeping the Olds rocket in the car until I dropped the oil pan and could pick the iol up with my hands. The car had been sitting for so long and there was so much sludge it would have taken a lot of time and money to get it perfect again. The car isnt to easy to put on a lift which was another factor in swappng the motor. I put in a chevy 350 with a turbo 350 tranny. Saved me a lot of money. I hope to be cutting the windsheild to fit tomarrow and cutting the front airbag cups down 2 more inches. Isnt sitting low enought for me!

    And the car will see gloss paint. It will be a dark blue with a gloss white roof with a small amount of metal flake on the roof and on the dash. Interior will be all blue with white stitching and white piping. Interior is not going to be til next year though. I will be driving this to the Road Zombies show in June here in california.
     
  12. That thing rocks man!!! I love the rear wheel treatment.

    Damn that's nice, the roof really has "flow". Just out of curiosity, is it going to have door glass? And is there any side trim, or is it totally shaved? I want to see this in paint, beautiful work.
     
  17. Very cool!Can't wait to see it in paint!

    Looks great! Glad you got it together using the Chevy stuff, let the type-a-billys use whatever engine they want in their car, use what you want in yours! Cant wait to see it in paint!

    The car will not have any side windows. The the doors are molded. The car originally was a four door and then Kyle who did the chop made it a 2 door.

    The car rides great. It is 4 linked. Kyle also did the notch and the four link before i got it from him. I bagged the front and currently cutting the cups down a little more.

    The olds rocket and tranny are just sitting in my garage right now. I am trying to sell both. The motor is in good shape. The tranny was leaking and is still all intact. The motor is apart. I took it apart to clean it.

    It is a boat and you really need to pay attention when you drive this since there are blind spots everywhere. Being able to see behind or to the side was not a priority.
