    The tile says it all. If you have some pictures of one all fix up that would be great. Thanks.

    although i'd probably never do it, i'd have a lot of respect for a done out 4 door chevelle.
    its unusual, which makes it cool.
    i love the look of a 69 chevelle, but honestly, there are a lot of restored ones out there, it's nice to have something thats just plain different...
    do you have any pics of it?

    Sure. My buddy had a hopped up grama car 4 door nova. It had his brothers hopped up Chevelle 396 in it for a while. Damn that was fun. Terd brown, have the vinyl top was gone, factory hub caps on 15x8 steelies with gator backs. Quite exhaust. Layed waste to all the snot nose punks with mustangs that momma bought them in the area. Then quetly drive off when the cops showed up in grama's old nova while the cops are nailing all the flashy cars. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Go for it! My 88 Burb is a real stop light sleeper. Pizza pan hub caps and a 454 with 3.73 gears /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Hey, me too, but mine had stock straight 6. Gave it up for rust though. Not enough time, love, or resources to keep it /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    My dad hot-rodded his 57 4-door Bel-Air. PO had stuck a triple-deuce 350 horse 327 in it with a Muncie. It was Gold and had the V and Chevrolet writing shaved off and was topped off with Cragar rims. It was the terror of the town till he bought his 67 Camaro 300/327... he sold it in the late 70's to get the family car for us! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif He still makes me cry to this day when he says, "You know, if I still had that Camaro, I'd have given it to you."
