    it is deff. not a resto, the frame and been filled and smoothed, powder coated and pinstriped, its on airbags, full custom interior(leather 4K) and all kinds of stuff, the inner fenders and core support have over 40 hours into them smoothing and making them one piece, there has been a lot of work done to this car for sure

    ill be out in may of 08

    I can relate, nothing better than working around old cars all day. My dad started his shop 8 years ago with him and one other guy and has grown it to over filling a 35,000 sqft building working 31 fulltime employees over 55 projects at a time. From magazine cover cars to people's elaborate "drivers", sorry to rant its just cool to see others enjoying the same gig.
