Yep. I'm glad Chuck bought the car. Besides, Chuck's notchback is rolling on 19s, so he was really in the "game" but no chop. Now with #013 he's officially 100% in the game plus with two MadArch widebodies to boot.



Welcome aboard!

Okay thanks for explaining that... I didn't recognize it with paint. Chuck owned it for like a minute before painting it?? I wish I knew painters like that around here.

Yep. Chuck knows how-to paint, so he did it himself ( like he did on the notchback widebody inside the garage). Chuck's, Don's LXs, and #022 should be a pretty good turn out for the Dells and friends.

Drop the stock seat rail height and lay back. Seriously, I don't think nobody who owns a choptop is taller than 6' 2"--- most are between 5' 10" to 6'

Wow! I really like the lines of those front fenders on that 246GT replica!


Anyway, you mentioned it has a V8 Archie chop top. The rear glass area looks chopped, and the front glass windshield looks laid back (as in a standard Archie chop), but is the side glass altered any? It looks stock --- not "bad stock" --- just stock. Just out of curiosity, is it?

It seems that I'm always picking up a car at V8Archie's during the winter months (that's the reason for hands being insided the pocket)-- thus the joke or position was born. Now choptop owners picks-up their car with their hands in the pockets.

In Archie's choptops - the seat rails have been modified thus gain a 1 inch or so. I would imagine the same is true for homebrews.

I don't think anything is going on with the green one. I'm finishing up the interior on the orange chop. Went with a black and tan design. Tenzo seats which made a custom center console necessary. I also made a new gauge pod with autometer C2's. I had an incident on the way home from the dells show so new paint is comming in a couple weeks then it's a new cam and long tube headers and back to the dyno. I really want the interior finished before all that because I don't think shops treat my car with the respect they should. I'm hoping with a nice interior this will change.

Yes, it's no secret, I had my eye on your quarter windows since last year, very hard to top your design and I tried.
At least we have good taste, hehe .

As for nose install, I'm trying for end of month ????
