Almost complete. Can't wait to be driving this thing.
i bet it was done with good craftsmanship but i hate the look of people taking classic cars and doing that. stock is better imho
To me, a stock car is bland. But if a customer wants a car restored to factory specs, we don't argue. This car was built to our tastes.
6.0l Chevrolet Fuel injected engine
Disk brakes all around
and the list could go on and on
A little bit of the modern day mixed with the classic car styling.
whats up with the holes on the front of the car? where the badges use to be?
that looks very silly
answered your own question. the old emblems werent stick on. they were held on with a stud and nut through the sheet metal
Yep that is where the emblems go. I forgot to mention that this thing used to be a four door. This is how she looked when we started:
Looks pretty cool. The only thing I don't really like is the gap between the end of the bumpers and the headlights.
great car, but fills the holes
We have the emblems, just need to polish them up. Also there is a piece that fills that gap between the bumper and headlights. We are in the process of straightening the pieces as they were damaged pretty good when we got the car.
awesome, why did you decide not to keep it a four door?
that is off-the-hook hawt. Love it! I like the stretched coupe look.
Because the only thing 4 doors belongs on is 2 cars
It actually isn't stretched. The front doors are to factory coupe specs. It may looked stretched because we made the rear side window one piece.
too much chrome is shaved off and the color is all wrong (satin? eww)
Can't wait to see this done.
Gonna be fun getting in that backseat, as short as those doors are.
who gives a fuck about the back seat
Apparently he does, since he restored ALL of the seats, instead of just the front seats. And since it has a backseat, it should be accessible.
Seriously, what is it with you people and 2-door cars? It's 100% image and 0% convenience. (For the TS' info, this is a long-standing disagreement between me and the rest of AM. Nothing personal.)
of course you redo all the seats, you don't want some shitty ratty fucking rag in the back and nice seats up front. As to convenience, my DD is a two door, and my next one will probably be a two door. I can count the number of times I've actually needed my rear seats on two hands....in fact I'm thinking about taking them out. Exactly what 'convenience' are you talking about here?
The convenience I'm talking about is that with a 4-door, you can open the side of the car to get at the backseat, but with a 2-door, you still have the backseat but it's virtually impossible to get anything bigger than a child in there.
I dunno about you, but occasionally I need to put things in the backseat that I need to be able to reach without opening the trunk. I'm not one of those guys who buys a Suburban because once a year I go on a family camping trip, but I do carry stuff in my car sometimes, and the trunk isn't always big enough or accessible enough while on the road.
I absolutely love it. I wouldn't change a damn t hing.
