Beautiful double nickle, my first car, too!
It's the long winters and no cable TV.

I figgered ...
Like I said, he does some remarkable work, much of which has been showcased at the World of Wheels. Nice guy, too!

There is another shop, right here in Olds, called Classic Auto Body, that does some amazing work as well.

Neither of these shops do any collision work ... 100% restoration, so they "get it" when it comes to doing restoration work.

A little update on the 55. Removed the blower to make it more of a driver and found that some crap went through the bottom end so we redid the entire engine, bumped the compression, swapped in a Bullet cam and added a Dart intake with a custom built Dominator. Net result on the Dyno a few weeks back was 713hp and 732ft lbs at the crank. Now I'm about to fit a new T56 Magnum in behind it and modify the tunnel to fit before it goes back together.

Time to sniff around and see what others have done to get their 6 speeds to fit within the stock confines of the tunnel area. I'll post some more pictures when it's going back together, but have updated my website with pictures of the engine build and some runs on the dyno. Pics and video are here!
