    Alright boys, had my Chevy photoshopped by a buddy of mine Jeff with Los CoChinos CC Houston........ Really torn between the two so I figured my fellow HAMB'rs could help me decide! The first pic has the "Cat Walk" extended & the second has a standard chop.

    Thanks,
    Sam

  2. I think the ones I've seen with the catwalk extended always seem to look better. Todd

    Look at the distance between the trunk and back glass.

  10. in both of those pics i think it would look better if the hump on the rear of the roof was lessened with like an inverted 21/2in pie cut up the c pillar my .02

    oh but i picked the standard chop

    Looked the same to me, too. Luckily, the fellers here made it obvious.

    C'mon, Rob...Vote with me. Number One!!!

    I would go with the extended cat walk. It goes with the extended rear quarters. The deal is we go with what we like...... You do the same.

  17. For me extending the cat walk makes the roof stubby like chopping a business coupe. I've always preffered laying the backlight down to meet the roof for more of a streamlined fastback look rather than sliding it forward.

    I didn't really see any differance at first, but after others pointed it out i can see it. I like customs where the roof makes a smooth transition into the trunk, but i also like Ford shoebox business coupes with the stubby roof and long trunk. If i had to choose i guess i like the first pic. It's kind of like asking do 10 grille teeth or 9 look better? Sure there is a differance, albeit a subtle one.

    Both look nice, but I like the extended catwalk just a little more.

    your photochop really isn't accurate since the slant of the rear window is the same on both versions. I figure most people extend the catwalk to keep the rear window at less of an angle in more radical chops.

    I see no reason to do it on this chop. lots of extra work for absolutely no gain.

    Extended makes car look sleeker and longer.

    The extended cat always seems like a cop out to me. I doesnt look right and seems like the easy way out. jmo

    I think there is a huge difference in the two chops! IMO......
