Way cool stuff.

Want a challenge? I'm rebuilding (not restoring) this 70 mustang. It's for my wife and she doesn't want a muscle car with scoops and spoilers. So I'm thinking of a very deep body color (like a deep red or blue and a light tan top. Make it like a classy hot rod. some 17" five spokes, lowered a little with a forward rake to it. Any other ideas?

The gold one is a good picture of a perfect 70 coupe with a vynal top and the other picture is a bad hack job of the scheme I have in my head.

Could you maybe do something with this. It's my 62 Electra. I'm planning a fuel injection system for it and preparing for a disc brake conversion. Eventually I would like to do a mild custom with it.

nice work!

Great Ideas Clark. Did you use Prisma colors on those? Good job with the color fades, and chrome. Those things can be tricky. Your designs are well thought out, and really compliment each car's original body lines. But I gotta tell ya, I really like the bug. Did you do all the body mods, and channel job yourself? I saw an oval here in Sac. about a year ago, with the same basic rat concept, and I loved it. Ever since then, Iv'e been itch'en to do one, but yours blows anything I would of thought about doing, off the jack-stands. nice work. :thumbup:
