I just looked at the pictures further down.

Just how big are those rims? That guy can park a fricken' corvette under it.

I would wheel it straight off a cliff. They should be shot for doing that to that car.

who would have thought you could take such a nice looking car, put a bunch of work into it, and end up with such an ugly pile of crap.

You'd think they'd put some big ass brakes on it. It looks goofy with those rims and the stock sized rotors.
Well it looks goofy all around.

i'm not saying it is built correctly but really would some of you say what you have said in this thread to the guy's face these posts like this are beginning to make me ill. Do you guy's not have respect for other peoples hobbies or tastes no one is forcing you to drive the damned thing. I'm sure people look at our jeeps and say why the fukc did that guy move his wheels why do his tires stick out where are the fenders .

I mean to each his own Just because you have different taste in Vehicles or hobby does not mean that this guy did not put many hours of blood sweat and tears into that car.

By the by if it was on stock suspension in that shape it would go for 12000 yesterday
oh and those look like 30's

Well said to each is there own. Some people dont even like 4 wheel drive so what ever floats your boat.. I give the guy credit for the hard work that was put in to it. Wouldn't be my first choice but still a nice project

If it were stock and all the parts there (glove box door, ash tray door etc...) I wouldn't mind having it. I have had a '72 Cutlass and loved it. Sold it cause the frame rotted off at the right front body mount. It was real common on these frames which include the Chevelle, Skylark and LeMans among maybe a few others. The body mount hole was punched so that the burr was facing up, on the inside of the frame rail it would collect salt and mud and it could not get out because of the lip created by punching the steel from the wrong direction. BTM.
