Wow! I'd call it done and drive the wheels off of that thing.
Screw the purists. Half of them have never seen what a factory original 'vette looks like in the first place, just restored to better than they ever were from the factory and drawn on with grease pencils by guys who need pills to get their dicks hard.
Yeah, I have an attitude problem with those guys.
I think by hacking..he just means cutting, and not hack job. To be 100% honest the tail lights in the Impala look wrong.
To me its kinda dumb to mess with it, unless plans are to keep it forever. Only gonna lower the value, and shaved handles seem so mid 70's-80's to me.
To clarify also, I'm not a prurist, I built a heavily modded 70's vette from a pretty much original vehicle that I still own, many years ago, but anymore to me some things are better left alone.
I cringe when I see any near complete stock vehicle being cut up on here to be honest, just cause someone has a whim. This thread just screams gimme attention by the title as it is, I guess the attempt to shock people is part of the fun.
Its not my dollar though, so I'm just pretty much babbling anyhow.
Very nice..have at it.
How much for the clock ?? >>>>.
You suck. Seriously,I think I'm going to go kill myself.
Just kidding. Your Impala is a tough act to follow,but you just may have done it. Congratulations and miles of smiles to ya!
Sure is a nice looking vette.
Its "just" a car...and its also YOURS...so go for it...I like the way it looks now
Not sure about the white walls on a 'vette, but the rest of the plan sounds good. Knock it out and hit the road!
Did you see this one on the Larry Watson personal picture thread?
Based upon all your other vehicles I have no doubt this is going to be extremely nice and tastefully executed.
I'm no purist but that year of Vette is timeless. When is modifying a car too much? When you lose the essence of timeless-ness. The white walls and chrome rims are enough.
he sure does!!
Go for it Mark! You got it made!
Chop it. Drop it. Fender skirts. That'll drive 'em mad!!!!
If i was gonna own a Vette again it'd be a solid axle one, preferably a 61, like your's..
That's a slick car just as it is and even though my first thought was leave it....i wouldn't myself. I'd have a straight axle under it with a blown 409!
Have at it! I'm sure it will come out top notch!
Bob Bleed got it, BUBBLE TOP!! You gotta have a bubble top to co-ordinate with the blown Hemi.
I say dont be afraid...cut the sum' bitch up and spray paint ANARCHY across the hood.
( but thats just me )
...By the way, I dig your 61' Impala
I really wanna corvette...
I can set you up with a nice 427 Ford/ C6 combo
I want a Vette too, it'd be a clone of the one from Hot Rods to Hell. I love the Vette in that movie!!
Mark you Lucky Dog!!! You get all the cool toys!
Are you going to chop it?
A Moriarity Vette......that should rule!
Hmm............I suggest something similar to this:
Like my uncle used to say, "Nothing holding you back but common sense and fear".
If it turns out half as nice as your lawn mower, (let alone your other stuff) it will be killer.
