    In 1962 while I was in the Navy, I had a 1954 Chevy 2 two door, it didn't look like yours OLD GOLD. You did some transforming on that one.Its one bad ass Chevy. Good job. Ralph

    Metal Surgeon, You've top me on bringing home a pile of scrap metal that looks like it could possibly had been a car at one time.This one tops the list. Thanks to everyone for sharing their projects. I've truly enjoyed all of them. Ralph

    It looked just like this in the bushes and as we cut down most of it... (and that's the former owner since 1964)

    Here's my slowly coming together 37 Chevy coupe. 1st when she came home, then blown apart to blast and epoxy prime to stop surface rust. Then back together cause I had to move across town. It's coming, not as fast as I'd like but she's mine all mine.

    I took a before picture about two years ago, and unfortunately, today's picture would look basically the same.

    I guess it's not as obvious which picture is before and which is after as I thought it would be.

    Awesome photos guys! Thanks for posting them. The before , the rebuild and after photos are amazing. Joe blow public sees our cars and say that is a nice old car having no clue most of them were rebuilt from a pile of junk,it takes total dedication to create what your dream car will look like when finished. When finished and driving down the highway it makes it all worth while.
