Which Style?

Just thought that I'd post a pic of my buddy Bob's car. The first pic is from Goodguys last year. The second pic is from Goodguys this year.
Which style do you like? I myself am a "Primer,No Shine'r" kinda guy but some of you I know are the "if it ain't chrome,paint it" kinda people.


He also has a Track nose(not my style) for the car too, but it isn't painted yet.
I actually found the second pic on another rod site. Some of my pics didn't turn out, but I will get a better pic the next time I am at his house.
Later,
WEIMER

I like the first one alot better. Im not much for choosing a style over billet rods or primer rods. I just like the more darker, and sinister look on cars.

#1 looks like it has a 32 grill. #2 looks like it has a 27 grill. personally, i like #1 better. nothing wrong with the paint, but no. 1 just has better eye appeal.

I like them both but my prefferance is # 2. (the car not the other #2 )
I like pretty shiny things better. You know a little paint and makeup. Oh yeah! we were talking about cars.

i noticed that too, i think i like the first one better but with the different grill and hood and the extra chrome on the front its really not a straight comparison of paint no paint


but both cars are awsome!!!!!!

Only thing I would change on the first one is to make the motor a little more "retro" looking.

The only thing I'd change on the 2nd version is to make it look like the original version again.

first one, although I think #2 would have won if it had the track nose. Im getting tired of flat black, but can recall the last time I saw a "traditional" car with spinner caps...
