    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
    Digital guages
    and the list could go on and on

    A little bit of the modern day mixed with the classic car styling.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
