I like my new look way better then when it was the GOLDEN SHOWER !!!!!
looks like it got some botox in the buttox
I have always really liked this chevy.So simple yet effective.
This one is my favorite, followed by a close tie between Ian's car and the Jesus Valencia car.
Yeah, 3 in the front 4 in the back. I'm about to chop my '50, I'm thinking 3.5 and 5. mine sits a bit lower in the back though, on springs of course... This car is great inspiration though, very mild and classy chop, I just want a HAIR more..maybe stick to 4.5 in the back and just take a hair more crown out of the roof itself at the rear.
Some pictures from California Screamin show yesterday.
The grill in the 51 had no teeth but the 52 dose, sorry for the correction
This is a great thread. There's been pleny in it to inspire me during the build on my 50, which I wasn't going to add this early. But, we got the sail panels in yesterday so the chop is finally closed up, and I thought maybe some of you would dig seeing it.
Ian Burkey, in Cali. he`s got my vote.
Very cool paint!
I couldn't pick out a favorite.. There's just too many of them.
However. If I were to end up with a Chevy of my own to customize, then the stance and proportions of this one would be a major influence on mine.
VERY nice chop! Please keep us posted as the car moves to completion.
Thanks! Here's the build thread if you are interested,
51 Chev ute from Australia
This is my fav, because it is all I have!!
Just wish I had the money and time to get back to work on it, and finish!
Nicely done; roof line and windows all flow well.....
What ever happened to Jesus' gift to the custom car world? I haven't seen it in a while.
I believe it's in Europe now.
Holy shit! Is it in the Russia.
There are some nice rides in this topic
God the cars on this thread are sweet. I had to sell my 50 sedan deluxe last year while in a financial pinch, and regret never burnt so bad.

There was a cover car in R & C or maybe Custom Rodder years back of a light blue fastback that had been hardtopped and made to look like factory. It also had Packard bubble taillights, if I remember correctly. Anyone else remember this car??
Google is my friend....
Love this thread
Yes! I forget about this one sometimes. Just a great custom with sooo many little details. Love it.
I think Berkys deserves to be up there.. Not only did he take it from what it was to what it is .. But all on his first build and learning at the same time. I am on my first build and trying to follow in his footsteps .. Can post pics from the app or I would ..
