    Default Different looks for the '55 Chevy

    Here's some quick PS work based on my favorite shoebox, Roy Brizio's gold '55.

    I really like his understated treatment of that car. With an AME chassis underneath it, a healthy SBC and a 6 speed, it should be a lot of fun to drive too.

    I like the 1 with the white roof. I'm a sucker for two tone 55s.

    I like all of the cars but I don't care for the first set of wheels.
    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting - Holy cow - what a ride!!!

    Skipp - I'd lean towards the 1st version with out the stacks and gold walls on the tires -- they all look good - hard to go wrong with a black 55

    With the amount of room/clearance under a tri-five hood those stacks with a small block would have to be +2 feet long/high.

    thats why one would need a 426 Hemi. I could imagine that conversation.
    "Dude, Why a 426?" "oh man, to avoid the 2 foot intake pipes a small block chev would require".


    love the white top shot. Very nice.

    Still playing around with that lowered gasser look.

    I like the back, maybe decrease the wide white stripe a little. Probably go a different style on the front wheel.
