1955 Chevrolet Bel-Air

Here's a special little project that's recently come into the shop.  This 55-hardtop is getting the top shelf treament.  We seperated the body from the frame and sent it out to Starbucks in Riverside for the full rust replacement, body fine tuning and the "to be determined" 2-tone color combination.

Wierd? I don't think so...

I don’t think my tastes run that weird but I’ve been searching the internet all morning looking for specific information on the cars I’ve chosen to own.  I know I’m a little quirky since I’ve probably owned more than 2500 cars and trucks in my lifetime and I’m probably a little jaded since I own a hot rod and custom car shop so I can drive whatever I want and ...

66 Suburban... slowly but surely

66 Suburban... slowly but surely Though the paint shop has spend 100's of hours working the body and blocking it to make this thing look great, it still is without more paint then the firewall.  Along with my 1,000,000 hours of rust repair this thing started to look like it was never going to get done.  So, this update shows that I am really making progress, the Raptor undercoating is done, ...
