That is awesome work!

Will you put crossflags on the gas tank lid?

That nose looks kind of heavy. Is it resting on the ground in that pic where you have a cushion under it?

Looks GREAT there....nice work....I love it....

It's remnicient of a friends shark up north that had similar headlights done like that, but his was anywhere as tricked out as yours....but his comments about it were that in Maryland, good old anal Maryland, the car could not be sold/regestered because the headlights were too LO to the ground, I forget the height requirement, 16-18"?....and sure enough an inspector affirmed that, wonder about New Jersey, or other states about that point???

you have it on the road?? did they give your any greif about that??

thks guys....

no cross flags will go on the gas cap we want to minimize it not accentuate it

Lee tell me more about that cruise to LB

as a historic car in NJ you do not go through inspection so i don't know if it would pass or not

in the picture with the front tilted it is resting on the ground on a foam pad, you can see the prop rod leaning on the windshield if you look close


this has like 4.11s in it ......it just jumps off the line and the side pipes sound really sweet they must have the lower noise baffles in them because they sound just right

Looks good Bob,I missed this whole thread so it's all new to me. Ws it a local car, did you paint it yourself? Great vette to mod anyway you want. I'm not partial to tilt noses myself but it sure makes engine work easier.
Good luck.

BOB-The show is actually east of the hospital/train station on old Ocean Avenue in the area of Rooneys and the Ocean Place Resort and Spa....if you come into the city via route 36 take 36 to the end and turn right at Ocean Boulevard to the show....or take Broadway to the end to the show area....Hope you can make it....I really LIKE THAT RIDE!

From the train station area its Bath Avenue or Pavillion Avenue to Ocean Boulevard-north to the show.
