Default Show stopper

100s of incredible customized cars were on display this past weekend at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, Calif -- including this 1963 (I think) Chevrolet convertible. Only the basic shape remains the same. Everything else was fully customized.

And, under the hood. It was a stunner to see in person.

Wow that is a modified car. I can only imagine the hours (and hours) of effort that went into it. Great shots . Indoor lighting is notoriously difficult to work with, but you handled these conditions very well.

It's a '63 Chevy Impala as you indicated. I recall these cars very fondly...when they were new, back in Minnesota.

A couple I recall had the 300 hp/ 327 cube V8...one coupe had a 409 cube V8...all with 4 on the floors. Not only did they look fantastic...with these engines they could also move very quickly.

G'day Walter

Thanks mate ~ I am completely gob-smacked to see this conversion
To take of jj ^ ... "it's no longer a car ... it's a work of art" > impossible to estimate how many hours of loving care nor how much $$ it's taken to put it all together, and no doubt, impossible to insure as well

Regards, Phil
