I dig it but I don't know if I would do it. I guess that is what makes it a one-off. I do like the 69 front end better than the 68 BUT I would have no idea where to start with that... but then again, who really would... well, that guy would I guess...
Does anyone else feel we're entering an era where people will look back and wonder "What were they thinking?"
Don't get me wrong, I do like the look of the car. I'm just wondering if many of these customization trends will quickly drop out of style.
It's like an automotive timeline:
70's: Shag carpet, huge fender flares
80's: Neon colors, monochromatic paint
90's: Non functional Pro-Street Posers, rise of the trailer queens
2000's: customization for no reason other than being "different"
Trends come and go... but classic design is forever.
That video was truly I N S A N E !!! AND I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it! Nice grille and nose fabrication too! I have always loved the beefy look of the 67-68 wheel wells, but only have owned 69 models because of the room inside and the grille. You truly have the best of both worlds there. Take care and enjoy it!

I see what you are saying there, but the thing is about this particular mod is that it is keeping the classic look of the car's sibling so it does make sense to me. However, the more that I look at the rear, the less I like it. At first glance I thought it was bada$$ but then I looked at it a second time and realized that I really like the original tail lights but maybe more like a more modern twist on them like that Blackjack car like here: http://www.superchevy.com/features/c.../photo_03.html
I really like those tail lights. It is what I consider the modern twis on the lights, without losing the spirit of the design. However, I don't like them enough to spend $500 on light bezels... We got a new CNC machine at my work so all I gotta do is buy a ton of aluminum and read the manual, then try it, mess it up, and get more aluminum to screw up on, then after about $700 of screwing it up, I'll go and buy them thinking I got off cheap!
