My 1951 Chevy Styline Deluxe Coupe
My Chopped 37 Chevy Sedan that I built in the late 80's and recently bought back last year. Still looks the same and I love it.
Another one of my creations from several years ago. An old barn fresh 37 Chevy pickup that I turned into a Kingcab. Still drive it now and then. Still not completely finished but sure has been is a lot of fun.
My most recent project. A 56 Chevy 2dr station wagon that I turned into and ElCamino. I am very pleased at how this one is turning out. Drove it to Detroit last year for the Woodward Cruise and it got a lot of positive feedback.
Most of my ideas I try to draw out and some I built from little diecast or plastic models first.
I recently sold this car that I built in 2004. It was a 1958 Chevy Biscayne that I turned into a mild Custom. Nose and decked it, used 50 Pontiac taillights and a 54 Chevy grille to get the look I wanted. My grandsons loved to cruise in it. They called it "The noisy car". Sold it to make room for my old 37 Sedan that I bought back. They love cruising in that now too.
Looks pretty similar now - just sitting a little lower....Body will be the last thing I get to
You turned a 3 window into a 5 window?
When it arrived at home

I was reading through this thread and had to laugh......
iwanaflattie, should'nt your signature line say "model a ford and a tank full of gas, a mouthful of pu$$y and a handful of a$$" NOT "model a ford and a tank full of gas
a handful of pu$$y and a mouthful of a$$"
I think of most of us on here would rather eat pu$$y than a$$. But to each his own.

And pay him for his time.like a true freind...he jumped on the chance me and the wife drove up two days later to south bend.the trailer was hooked up and off my freind and i went. This car owned buy a little old black lady sat out on woodward for years.after her passing her grandkids put it up for sale.2 months after the pic was takin.

My car started as 2 cars. One frame one for the body.
My car started out as a whole buncha cars! Got parts from Florida to Oregon in it..started out as a stock car racer body, cut into pieces and stored in the rafters ..[only used the top in the finished body] traded a 53 stude coupe for the rolling chassis..[only used the bare frame for the chassis] ...damn, I've bought a lotta parts and driven a lotta miles to get them and I'm still not done!
My old 29 Sedan.
