Looking good Barry. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

I noticed that the front end is stretched. How much did you lengthen the wheelbase on it? My Studebaker is 110" down from 121" from the factory. On my 68 Camaro I shortened that one a couple of inches when I built it but I don't remember what I wound up with. The one I have now is 107".

barry there's so many ways i wanna "bust yer balls "about that car.

i could say that you didn't HAFTA cut that car up. enterprise rental stopped looking for that thing 5 yrs ago. but i won't.

i could say that at LEAST it was painted 2 yrs ago. but i won't.

i could say it woulda been a LOT cheaper just to put a head gasket on it.
but i won't.



what i will say is, in all honesty, that's a helluva car & you've done a great job on it. =D> =D> =D> ...mel



Well Mel, there is one thing for sure...I will bust yer balls for as long as that car of yours is not HAHAHAHAHA PAINTED!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry just couldn't help that =; =; =; =;

The reason it might look like more than the 6 inch stretch is because of the way the quarters are opened up. What is normally done on the rear wheel opening is the quarters are cut at the center of the wheel opening and moved forward 6 inches which effectively shortens the wheelbase 3 inches. you make this up in the front end so to increase the wheelbase 6 inches you have added 9. At least that how I did mine and that's per McAmis instructions and looking at the pics of Barry's that how it looks like his was done.
