For a minute there I thought it was white, with gold tyres.

Great job Bob.

I believe that is the car you were driving when I met you many years ago.

Looks fantastic, Bob. Blue is my favorite color anyway, and I think there should be more blue cars...but you picked a good shade.

Not that it looked bad before, but do I like the new look much better.

Only one question Uncle Bob, is the passenger seat mounted lower, so you can take regular sized people for a ride? Very Happy

That Chebby is Da Bomb...and the shop makes a great backdrop.
Love it

Can we see the interior? Maybe the engine bay, too?

Peter yes but this one is chopped 4 inches so all of my vertically challenged friends must recline the power recliner passenger seat. Normal sized folks can see just fine with the seat in an upright position. Laughing Laughing Laughing

OK, so you only changed the outside huh?

Last time I rode in it I had to lay the seat horizontal, so all I could see was the roof lining. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Really nice car, kind of a combination of styles that work well. Is that. '46 grille? Does the front clip tilt? I was looking to see how the hood fit ti the fenders, my '46 is terrible, and I see no line from hood to fender.
