What stage is this in?
When did you purchase it and for how much?
I purchased it about 2 years ago.
Why did you choose this vehicle?
It’s a Hot Rod, why wouldn’t I purchase it?
What sort of condition was it in when you started the project, what was wrong with it, etc.
It was in boxes, needing someone to customize it and begin to put together an amazing Hot Rod.
What, specifically have you done, or had done to it?
This thing is custom, from the front to the back. Not a thing has been untouched.
Can you list any and all parts that you have put in?
I gave it an LS engine with a turbo 350 transmission to back it up.
It has a custom C notch and box frame
I used a Chevy seat out of a van
New sheet metal and painted speed holes all over the place
The racing gas tank box is framed and sheeted in led tail lights
I built stock box and fender then set it out side. I don’t like stock looking so I made it a custom fab bike hauler
The engine has custom covers to hide the coils and wiring
It has a 70’s corvette rear end.
Custom House of Colour paint, black with red metal flake
I used the wife’s table cloth on the fenders (don’t tell her!) for the air brushing pattern. I used silver with red candy paint. I think she is still looking for her table cloth. LOL

My name is Dennis. First, let me just say, I am a Christian, a husband, a father to 1 beautiful step-daughter and 3 strapping young boys and a step-grandfather (She calls me “Grumpy”) to a gorgeous step-granddaughter. These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do. (Granddaughter isn’t old enough and daughter has other interests.)
