Right now I own six Chevrolets: one daily driver, one parts car, and four project cars.

I think I'll be needing a change once I get through this batch of projects.

And no, I'm not thinking of jumping into the Jag project.

Come on, man, you're too young to be wearing adult diapers.

I'v seen your work, Camino- and I asked this before: want something different- how about reassembling a '59 Buick coupe ??

I really doubt that it will be a Buick, but I'm not sure what vintage I want to do next.

I wish you were around the corner though, I'd love to give you a hand with yours!

{pours on the sales pitch}

'50s is the era, man!

I'm not that far, plus I have a fully-equipped shop (well, no lift; but you won't need that... much).

WaWa 2 miles away !

Had to throw that Wawa perk in, didn't you? :lol:

I'd love to give you a hand some weekend along the line.

It's been quite a while since I did any work non-solo, even the race car work is all me.

Nothing wrong with Chevy, just have to use some imagination. How about a rear-engined 1959 Impala wheelie machine? :rwd:

Nothing wrong with Chevy at all!

But I'd like to do something else for a change.

I also want the process to be different.

For something offbeat, how about a ground up restoration of an '80s Aries, Tempo, or Cimmaron? Or other '80s non-classic.

"Offbeat" would be putting it mildly.

No FWD - ever!

I am thinking late 50s - early 60s...

Hmmm...how about a Studebaker Lark, Rambler American, or one of those hideous '60-62 Valiants? That would be offbeat.

If Studebaker, then Hawk.

>>"I am thinking late 50s - early 60s... "<<

Come on down! You're the next resto-modder on the World's Quickest '59 Buick !

In response to a phantom, and in the vein of an Elky :: ever think of an extended-deck coupe with an Elky-esque greenhouse (in size), or a 3-seater 'sports roadster' ??

'58 Biscayne 2-dr, extended deck. It'd be the only one.

'nother question: What sedan deliveries were still in production during any of the years from '59 to say '63ish?

Chevy's last was '59 or '60. Ford's was '59. There was a Falcon sedan delivery from '60-65. Don't know when the last Mopie one was or from the independents. Rambler had one based on the Rambler 2dr wagon at some point, seen a pic of one from the late '50s.
