    I started out with this street rod, with a grey 'suedo' interior, late model bronco seats, Toyota overhead lighting console, grey plastic with sunglasses compartment, Toyota floor console, grey plastic CD storage and cup holders & 13" wood steering wheel:eek:;

    Here's what my 52 started as...

    Owner took the wheels off the front and the drums sank up about 5" in the dirt.

    Here are the most recent pics of it... I still have a lot to do, but I've enjoyed it a lot also over the past almost 5 years now :D. Once I get something else together I plan to strip it back down and completely redo it.

    This is what i started with, best i don't post where it is now - i am just adding a 3" filler to strecth the roof after whacking 8" off the top. It is different and on the extreme side and i'd rather wait present a more finished product.
    I am just using the cab, maybe the hood and grille - creative as i am i just couldn't figure how to customize the wrecker boom and had to cut that loose along with the frame etc. It was an agonizing decision.
