    Here’s another ghia that followed me home.. 59… it’s OK.. needs a lot of love..  No decision has really been made on it… I bought it to get it in our family…. 😎    I sold that 51 chevy a week or so ago.. and I have been talking about wanting a ghia. Now I kinda want a sedan to drive around… Maybe a twin to Franz’s slammed beetle.. Or Zacks 66… Patina, disc’s and detailed fuch’s??  😎    Pat K was talking about building it all stock and purdy  to sell…. 😎    Options… we got options…  Honestly I think the 57 out back is probably cleaner…

    Nice!  Where did you pick that one up at?  I have been thinking about doing a low light a lot lately.

    Nice JJ!  I like the bamboo & green combo….the Ghia version of SGPG.  Look forward to seeing what you do with it.

    decisions, decisions, decisions! I think this car will be great no matter what direction the build goes in the hands at KCW!

    That car has a great look already; it’ll be awesome slammed on detailed earlies.

    Spent some time getting more crud outta this car… the pan is UGLY….  But I keep vacuuming and trying to dry it out…   I hope to throw this together in the next week or two…. 😎  I got nothing else to do in my spare time…. 😎  😎  I don’t have a yard to mess with, or sprinklers to blow out or any of that stuff I really disliked about this time of year…….. 😎  😎  and fairly caught up on my shit…. 😎

     

    Detailed fuch’s, 2″ beam, dropped spindles, disc up front, drums in rear, adapters…  I think I have a good SP1600 I can stuff into it… 😎

    Since I am lowering it… Juan… If you want anything special I am not using…. I will donate to the cause… 😎

    I’ll start saving my pennies so when you are tired of this one maybe it can come down to Florida… I need a low lite in my life.

    I imagine that is where this is heading…   I’ll get it running and driving… then send it down the road.. I want to build that 57 out back…  😎  It should be cheap for low light standards… 😎  I’m not planning on getting carried away… 😎
