By the looks of that car, you'd be better off making a lowrider out of it. You know bag it and put some 22's on it

Ok try this on for size:

How much of the car are you currently working with and what is it exactly that you want to do? do you just want to add some fancy pinstripes or make it look like a car from the 40's and 50's? what is your vision?

I havnt touched any of it yet. It is in mint condition top to bottom and has been garage kept by a family member. I would love to turn it into some type of hot rod but all Ive found is pics of them slammed to the ground ect. I would like to see one that has had some inhanced motor, transmission work as well as a cosmetic change that gives a car the hot rod look.....mags, hood scoop ect...

Try this site out ...www.pro-touring.com/forum/showthread.php?p=374984 or this one..www.cardomain.com/ride/2255065.. hope they help, but myself a nice set of American Racing Mags and a pair of small scoops placed on the hood just right with a pair of exterior gauges on the drivers side of the hood and the ass end just up a bit would give it a hot rod look..
