    Joey, Thanks for this. A couple of fine looking automobiles, the only thing better would have been a little video showing them off!

  6. They're both so simple and right.

    had to throw a tack into my '33 5 window because when staged with a wild '55 I couldn't even tell if my engine was running...

    That '55 is spot-on, and the lil Falcon looks like a real-life model kit (I mean that as a compliment). Some nice shots

    Great shots...I'm especially partial to that 55...I have one myself that I've owned since 1977 6-28-06 007.jpg

    I saw this earlier this morning and couldn't come up with words to rely.
    My initial reaction was oooh that 55 is soo Bitchin'


    Then the more I looked at it ,the more unbelievable detail I saw with such a seemingly simple car.
    If ever I 'm fortunate enough to build a 55 similar , I hope I can restrain where needed as well as Let Loose as this builder did masterfully.

    Well said...it takes a whole lot of restraint to avoid over-doing a car, and this guy nailed it for sure.

    I can't even tell you when I last saw a Ford big truck scoop on a hood. I had one on my my '53 Ford Customline 2dr with a 322 Nailhead in it and that was the early sixties. Like to have that one back!

    If the '55 was any more right,
    it would be wrong.

  22. First things first,I am a hard core Ford guy and make no apology's for it,secondly I love Falcons and this one is bad arse! but the '55 Chevy looks so much like the one the guy up the street owned when I was a kid.

    The simple look of the 2 door post,no front bumper,the hood scoop,the mags up front and chrome reverse in the rear,I almost feel like I am looking a Melvin's old cat in 1964. HRP

    Hey you did get a cruise to boot...never been in a real powerhouse street/strip or otherwise but I'm sure you'll never forget it. Always liked that oh so familiar dash...something tells me it didn't feel or sound like an average 55.

    That saying "Do what you know" never heard it put that way...thats another of lifes eccentricities is figuring out what the heck people are saying...I guess its kinda like those others I heard here and there like "Knock yourself out" or "Whatever floats your boat." ​

    That 55 is spot on, it's not overdone and has some subtle details that sneak up on you
